Just released — the Comisión Nacional de Áreas Naturales Protegidas (CONANP) and World Wildlife Fund Mexico just released the 2015-16 eastern monarch numbers and the overall population has increased! Monitoring indicates the monarch population is occupying 4.01 hectares. That’s more than three times the area covered for the 2014-2015 count.
Considerably more monarch habitat has to be redeveloped throughout the monarch migration route, however, if we’re going to get back to the population of mid-2000. Check out the Wild for Monarchs program developed by Wild Ones: Native Plants, Natural Landscapes to find out what you can do to develop more habitat for monarchs.
