African Monarch butter ies are beautiful with vibrant coloured ochre and black wings, decorated with white stripes. ese bright colours are a clear warning that they are poisonous. The African Monarch larvae feed on the Milkweed plant, ingesting the toxins and are therefore not palatable to avian predators. Some non-poisonous species of butterfly imic the colours and patterns of the African Monarch, and their slow leisurely flight, thus lessening their chances of being preyed upon. Th e African Monarch is a common butterfl y widespread across Africa. Like other pollinators, butterflies are exposed to pesticides, urban development, and modern farming. The destruction of their natural habitat eliminates the plants they need to sustain themselves through the different stages of their life cycle. There is a worldwide threat to the populations of pollinators, thereby threatening the pollination of the crops we as humans rely on. Nice and perfect gift!
