Join the International Monarch Monitoring Blitz!

Few insects rival the Monarch when it comes to iconic North American pollinators. With their striking colors, widespread distribution, and dramatic migrations, it’s easy to understand why. However, these beloved butterflies may face an uncertain future—eastern migratory populations have declined by more than 80% in the last 20 years. Conserving them requires international cooperation and a better understanding of how populations are distributed within the Monarch’s breeding range.

You can help gather information by joining thousands of volunteers in Canada, Mexico and the United States, from July 24 to August 2, 2020 for the 4th annual International Monarch Monitoring Blitz! With limited ability to do field work due to COVID-19 restrictions, researchers need your observations now more than ever.

To take part in the Blitz, submit your data to Mission Monarch: https://www.mission-monarch.org/
