A recent study has revealed that butterflies in California are on the verge of becoming extinct due to the increasing use of Monsanto’s glyphosate-based herbicide, Roundup. 

According to researchers, Roundup is one of the main contributing factors to the sharp decline in monarch butterflies over the last 20 years.

Naturalnews.com reports:

Since 1997, monarch butterfly populations have decreased by a staggering 74 percent in California, home to one of the butterfly’s most highly populated migrating grounds. A crucial natural pollinator of North American crops, the world cannot afford to lose these marvelous orange and black six-legged creatures.

Aside from excessive commercial development of forested lands, the use of glyphosate-based herbicides has been a large reason for monarch butterfly population declines.

GLYPHOSATE HERBICIDES LINKED TO MONARCH BUTTERFLY DIE-OFFS

The use of glyphosate in North American agriculture has increased 15 times since genetically modified Roundup Ready crops were first introduced in the 1990s. Consequently, a study conducted by Isabel Ramirez at the Universidad Nacional Autonoma in Mexico, revealed “significant decreases” in monarch butterfly populations in hibernation areas across North America between the late 90s and today.
