Recently, one of the most enamoured species of butterfly, better known as the Monarch Butterfly, was added to the list of endangered species (care of CBC, care of National Geographic).

The species of butterfly was added to an ever growing list of endangered species of butterflies and moths, otherwise described as invertebrates.

Much like another endangered invertebrate species (the bee), butterflies are pollinators. That is, they carry the pollen from male flowers to the stigma of female flowers as part of an important process in the cycle of flowering plant reproduction.

Despite the risk this poses for their ever dwindling numbers, there is something you can do about it. One Green Planet has a list of 8 ways you can do your part in protecting this and other endangered butterflies. In addition Earth Day lists other ways you can do your part as well.

If these means are beyond your ability to participate for any reason, you can always support one of the many different charities and organizations working hard to protect these and other invertebrate species listed below:

So those are some of the ways you can help this real world species.

Thankfully, the Butterfly Dragon here on Shhhh! Digital Media is far from extinction and will continue on into the foreseeable future.
