JUL Designs have created this Filigree Monarch shawl stick as part of their pollinator series - launched with their Filigree Honeybee knitwear jewelry collection - to celebrate the majestic beauty and to raise awareness of the threats Monarchs face.

Grow Milkweed in your garden to help save the habitat that Monarch caterpillars need in order that this species survive. Milkweed is all they eat.

Monarch butterflies are endangered.  While the butterflies pollinate many flower species during their nectar foraging, Monarch caterpillars only eat Milkweed and in the United States we have lost 860 million Milkweed stems in the last decade.  During this same time, the population of migratory Monarch butterflies has declined by 80% according to the US Geological Survey. Estimates are that we need as many as 1.8 billion more stems of Milkweed to restore our Monarch butterflies to healthy populations.
