Looking to next generation’s environment boosters

In the article “Something’s amiss with regal insect missing” (Metro, Aug. 13), about the dramatic decline of the monarch butterfly as a result of human actions, namely climate change and habitat loss, it was refreshing to read quotes from an 11-year-old budding ecologist and a preschool teacher.
