100 Million Monarch Butterflies Are Headed Straight For Kansas This Spring

If you can remember through the last 20 or so years, monarch butterflies haven’t been doing too well. Since at least the 80s, monarch populations have been in decline, and we’ve been worried about the eventual downfall of our favorite migrating butterflies. This year, however, there are millions of monarch butterflies headed straight for Kansas, more than we’ve seen in a long time. They’re a little early, but we’re trying to spot as many as we can! Even if it’s not exactly 100 million, there are definitely millions spread all over the state.
