    The Planet Wildlife Fund and the Mexican government has released market research from the monarch’s wintering grounds inside a western Mexican forest. Monarch numbers are slightly up on last year – but still much less than they once were.

    The monarch’s migration takes it through Missouri and Illinois with its large farms, and with herbicide killing milkweed required to sustain the monarch, it is severely affecting the migration.

    I think what you read there has been translated from Spanish – it’s a wee bit hard to understand.
