The 22-minute documentary film looks at the causes behind the declining population of the monarch, the lifecycle of the butterfly and what people can do to help reverse the trend. The husband-and-wife team will also talk about how they became interested in monarch butterflies and why they decided to make the film, which has been shown on the local PBS affiliate in Charleston, Ill.
