Eastern monarch butterflies may be doomed

Restoring native habitat could reverse the monarch butterfly's downward population trend, scientists say.

Without help, Eastern monarch butterflies will go extinct in the coming decades, according to a newly published study. U.S. Geological Survey and Scripps Institute of Oceanography scientists calculate a substantial chance - between 11 percent and 57 percent - of what they called "quasi-extinction" by 2036. That means a population so small that recovery becomes impossible.

What would you use?
