Missourians for Monarchs is a statewide collaborative bringing diverse interests together for monarch conservation. More than 90 percent of the land that makes up the state of Missouri is privately owned. In order to truly make a lasting impact in monarch conservation, these landownders must be involved. In this project, the coalition is working on reaching out to three audiences in Missouri to bring about landscape level conservation: agricultural producers and farmers, the general public, and conservation organizations. They are developing three different videos tailored to each group, to be distributed online and on DVD. Through these videos, Missourians for Monarchs seeks to educate landowners and affect change on the landscape, and will provide a missing resource for Missourians interested in monarch conservation.
The Monarch Joint Venture (MJV) is a partnership of federal and state agencies, non-governmental organizations, and academic programs that are working together to support and coordinate efforts to protect the monarch migration across the lower 48 United States.
