MARUKO MONARCH PROJECT

#SavetheMonarchs

A Personal Project by Dr. Evelyn Maruko

Saving a Species, One Seed at a Time

This is a monarch butterfly.

Looks like any ordinary butterfly, right?

Well, the monarch butterfly is unique in the way it exhibits the most highly evolved migration pattern of any known species of butterfly, moth, and perhaps any known insect. 

Problem is, they're pre-endangered and pretty soon, could find themselves in the endangered category! :(

What's this about?

Why are they pre-endangered?

See those purple flowers?

That's native milkweed, a monarch butterfly's food. An increase in herbicide use and a variety of factors is decreasing the availability of their primary food.

No milkweed, no monarch caterpillars. No monarch caterpillars, no monarch butterflies.

Oh no! :(

We know, this milkweed shortage is terrible for the monarchs.

That's where the Maruko Monarch Project comes in and YOU get to help! :)

THE MISSION

Awesome! I want to participate!!

Great! There is NO COST involved in participating and the actual planting of the seeds can be done by ANYONE and takes less than 10 seconds! A packet of native California milkweed seeds can be picked up at our office during regular office hours.

DUE TO HIGH DEMAND, PRIOR TO PICKUP: 

If you are a resident of Orange County, CA, we ask that you give our office a call at 714.685.3890 to reserve your packet of seeds OR reserve online by filling out the form below. Thank you!

Hello & thank you for stopping by!

The monarch butterfly is now on the pre endangered species list. Through this project, I hope to encourage everyone to plant native milkweed in their garden. No milkweed, no monarch caterpillars. No monarch caterpillars, no monarch butterflies.

I want to make this a grass roots effort to help the monarch one garden, one plant, one seed at a time. I want to share the simple joy seeing a monarch butterfly spread its wings and take flight for the first time and bring the beauty and wonder nature into our every day lives.

I hope that together, we can all share in the joy of helping the monarch thrive once again!
