Telling this story is of utmost importance, not only to inform people about the delicate state of pollinators and the environment, but also as a call to action to learn about the ways how we can help save monarchs and other pollinators. How we engage with our communities to do their part to fight climate change and build a more sustainable world is integral to survival of the human species. The Monarch Ultra provides an opportunity for dialogue about pollinators and their significance to biodiversity and food security. The Monarch Ultra team hopes to see the monarch butterfly become a symbol of resiliency, strength, and empowerment that motivates people into conservation action. We also hope that this inspiring project is just the beginning of a larger movement to help protect pollinator species worldwide.
