Graffiti for Butterflies
A neat way to help monarch butterflies during their long, cross-USA migration: this prototype uses sunblock as UV-visible spray paint on oversized flower decals. Post them like beacons to attract migrating monarchs to urban food sources and breeding habitats, "like fast-food signs on a highway". Bomb!
