SPECIES INFORMATION PROVIDED BY: Elizabeth Ann Gonzalez, UTRGV Biology Graduate Student

"The rare Prostrate Milkweed (Asclepias prostrata), solely found in Texas's Starr and Zapata Counties, was listed as federally endangered in 2023 due to habitat loss and unique anthropogenic factors. Although prostrate milkweed is known to be a robust plant that can thrive in the harshest of climates, this Monarch butterfly host plant faces threats from invasive species (e.g., buffelgrass), energy projects, and border wall construction. Habitat reduction caused by both federal and Texas border wall projects exacerbates the issue in the Texas-Mexico transboundary area. Future restoration hinges on collaboration among private landowners and state/federal entities to counteract these challenges."
