For those with hearts that flutter with the sight of a monarch, this site will be essential. The simply-stated, yet ambitious, mission of livemonarch.org is "to educate everyone in the United States and beyond about habitat loss and what they can do to assist native animals." A significant goal of the site is to distribute free milkweed seeds to anyone interested in helping the cause of helping monarchs, stating: "Monarchs are not pests and will not eat anything but Milkweed. They do not hurt crops, ornamental trees or in any way upset the balance of nature in areas they are introduced." In fact, if anything results from the introduction of more monarchs, it will be a move towards a better balance. As the result of several days of freezing rain and unusually cold temperatures in 2002, nearly 80 percent of the monarchs wintering in Mexico died. While they are making a comeback, monarch.org states that "one seed can change the world." The organization even offers free milkweed seeds off of its Web site. [JPM]
