Michigan is 1 of 3 states that does not have an official State Insect. The Monarch Butterfly is widely recognized throughout the State of Michigan. The Monarch lures many tourist annually to the shores of The Great Lakes to view it's migration. The Monarch is symbolic for Michigan, through hard work and tenacity our state can emerge beautifully. The people of Michigan understand the importance of the preservation of this beautiful creature. And by making it our state's insect, it will help to shed light on that effort.
