# Why Monarchs?

Arkansas lies within the migratory and spring breeding area of the monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus), a species that has declined significantly over the last 20 years. As a critical part of the migratory flyway of the monarch, we as Arkansans recognized the importance of the issue and the need to be a part of the solution. Join us in recognizing the importance of conserving the monarch and their spectacular migration.
