"Monarch butterfly populations are declining due to loss of habitat.  To assure a future for monarchs, conservation and restoration of milkweeds needs to become a national priority."  Chip Taylor, Director, Monarch Watch



Here you will find resources about all things monarchs. From raising monarchs to learning about their fascinating migration.

University of Minnesota

Wild for Monarchs campaign is designed to harness the power of our national membership and 50 local chapters to educate and advocate for the monarchs and the native plants that support the monarch population and their migration. 



Citizen scientists track the monarch butterfly migration each fall and spring as the monarchs travel to and from Mexico. Report your own observations of migrating butterflies to real-time migration maps. Share data to help scientists understand how monarchs respond to climate and changing seasons. Explore monarch butterfly life cycle, ecology, habitat and conservation needs.

Butterflies are valuable components of our environment. From the grassland-dependent species of the Pacific Northwest to swallowtails of Central and South America, we work to conserve butterflies and moths throughout the world. The Red List of butterflies and moths assessed the conservation needs of some of the most at risk North American species. The Xerces Society works with state and federal agencies, landowners, and other nonprofit organizations to achieve effective Lepidoptera conservation.
