The Monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) is a well-known North American butterfly.
Its wings feature an easily recognizable orange and black pattern.
Monarchs are especially noted for their lengthy annual migration.
Recent illegal deforestation of the Monarch's overwintering grounds have led to a drastic reduction in the butterfly's population.
