Illinois Working On Plan To Protect Monarchs
The Monarch butterfly population has dropped dramatically in recent years, and the federal government is now considering endangered species protection for the butterfly.
Monarchs travel through Illinois each year as part of their migration. Earlier this month, conservation experts and state officials held a summit to discuss the state's plan for monarch conservation.
Illinois Issues editor Jamey Dunn caught up with Carol Hayes, executive director of the Prairie Rivers Network, to talk about it.
