Featured species: The Monarch
COSEWIC status: Endangered
With its bright colours, large size, and slow powerful flight, the Monarch (Danaus plexippus) is probably the most widely recognized of all North American butterflies. The bright orange wings, which span 93 to 105 mm, have a thick black border containing two rows of white spots.

How You Can #DoMoreForWildlife
From delectable treats like apples, strawberries, cucumbers and even chocolate, pollinators are responsible for one out of every three bites of food we take and are vital not only to our existence as human beings but to our planet. You can help our pollinators like the beautiful monarch butterfly when you make a promise to #DoMoreForWildlife. Share your commitment and encourage others in your network to do the same. Be sure to let us know which action you will be taking by sharing your promise to take action on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #DoMoreForWildlife and tagging @CWF_FCF.
Each individual can have a positive impact toward a healthier natural world by making the choice to try to avoid single use plastic products like grocery bags, produce bags, straws and bottles and replace them with reusable alternatives. This means that every day we have a chance to take personal action to help create the kind of world we want to live in. When you purchase and use the items from the #DoMoreForWidllife Bundle, you are making a promise to #DoMoreForWildlife. It’s a simple change that can help to make a world of difference.
