Who We Are & What We Do
The Monarch Joint Venture is a nonprofit organization building a national partnership of federal and state agencies, other nonprofits, community groups, businesses, and academic programs working together to conserve monarch butterflies and other pollinators. Since 2008, the MJV has brought together partners from across the United States in a unified effort to conserve the monarch migration. This diverse partnership includes federal and state agencies, other nonprofits, community groups, businesses, and academic programs that work together to implement science-based conservation actions in the form of education, habitat, and science. These actions are organized in a regularly updated Monarch Conservation Implementation Plan, which serves as a framework to guide conservation planning for individuals, partners, and other interested stakeholders nationally.
As a leader in monarch conservation, the MJV supports monarch conservation planning and implementation efforts on a broad scale by facilitating information sharing, partnership building, and carrying out identified conservation priorities. We facilitate multiple working groups that focus on things like communications, agriculture, and monitoring. Additionally, the MJV funds its partners to carry out priority actions identified in the Implementation Plan. Beyond this, we provide accessible educational information on monarchs and their conservation to various sectors and the public.
To reach our nation’s ambitious monarch and habitat targets, commitment from a diverse set of stakeholders is required. The MJV works to recruit, educate, engage, and inspire to action a broad spectrum of individuals and entities, both partner and non-partner.
