This map of "All Migration Sightings" shows all of the places where people have observed and reported migrating monarch butterflies. One dot can equal anywhere from one butterfly to thousands!

  • Find your home state/province on the map. How does your own region compare to other parts of North America?


  • Challenge: Write sentences to describe what this map reveals about the distribution of monarchs. What doesn't the map tell you about the abundance of monarchs?
