Monarch Butterfly

The monarch butterfly is one of the most important pollinators. As they move, they transport and deposit pollen, fertilizing plants and allowing those plants to reproduce. Their population has declined by approximately 90 percent since the 1990s as they face habitat loss and fragmentation in the United States and Mexico. You can help monarchs by symbolically adopt one today.

Each symbolic adoption supports tree planting across the U.S.

Scientists believe that higher temperatures sparked by climate change pushed animals beyond the tipping point making them more vulnerable. If temperatures remain high, many more species may disappear altogether. That's why the National Wildlife Federation's Wildlife created the Symbolic Wild Animal Adoption program because your support directly can help our efforts to reduce climate-change pollution, restore habitats in America's forests, wetlands, grasslands, waterways and coasts to sustaining wildlife populations.
You will help protect America's precious wildlife and habitats with your adoption.
