Partnering to conserve the monarch butterfly migration

Project Descriptions

Project Descriptions

The Monarch Joint Venture seeks to educate and empower its stakeholders to take an active role in protecting monarchs. Whether in the classroom or in the wild, we create meaningful opportunities for people of all backgrounds to contribute to our conservation efforts. Partners involved with the Monarch Joint Venture are engaged in a diverse set of activities that support monarch habitat conservation, maintenance and enhancement, education, and research and monitoring.

Ensuring the availability of quality habitat is critical for the conservation of any species. Today, monarchs in the U.S. are particularly vulnerable due to reduced abundance of milkweed and nectar plants in the landscape, and diminishing overwintering habitat in California. MJV partners are engaged in work focused on improving habitat availability and quality for both eastern and western monarch populations.
