Margaret Larson is a conservationist who works to increase the population of monarch butterflies. She collects monarch butterfly eggs from milkweed plants, watches over the caterpillars as they develop and then releases them back into the wild when they emerge from their cocoons as butterflies. Larson also works with volunteers to conserve the milkweed plant, a key source of food for the monarch. She speaks at schools and community centres to educate others about the importance of environmentalism.
