Love butterflies? Sign the Monarch Manifesto!

Join the growing international movement to bring monarch butterflies back from the brink by signing the Monarch Manifesto.

Please sign the Monarch Manifesto, a pledge to do your part to help bring monarch butterflies back from the brink.

This simple pledge includes committing to do three things in your garden and two things you can in in your neighbourhood — with help from the David Suzuki Foundation.

By joining the Monarch Manifesto you commit to growing milkweed, reporting monarch butterfly sightings and avoiding pesticides or herbicides in your yard or garden.

The pledge also includes asking a school, faith group, business or other institution in your neighbourhood to consider planting a butterfly garden and calling local garden centres and nurseries to ask them to have milkweed plants on their shelves.

Join the 12059 citizens who have pledged to do their part to bring back monarch butterflies. Help us get to 15000 pledges by sharing on Facebook, Twitter or email.

My pledge for monarch butterflies.

I commit to:

  1. GROW milkweed and other native wildflowers in my yard and/or on my balcony
  2. REPORT monarch butterfly sightings in my community using #monarchwatch
  3. AVOID using pesticides or herbicides in my yard or garden
  4. CONTACT at least one school, faith group, business or other institution in my neighbourhood about planting a butterfly garden
  5. CALL local garden centres and nurseries to ask them to order native milkweed plants for next spring

The David Suzuki Foundation will help me by providing information and instructions on how to complete each of these tasks.
