Western Monarch News Archive


North America has two migratory populations of monarch butterflies. This collection of articles and resources focuses on the western population.

During the spring and the fall migration seasons, Gail Morris provides valuable insights into monarch behavior. Ms. Morris bases her letters on insights provided by Journey North volunteers and regional experts. Gail Morris is the Coordinator of the Southwest Monarch Study (www.swmonarchs.org) and the Western Monarch Advocates. She is also a Monarch Watch Conservation Specialist and the Vice President of the Central Arizona Butterfly Association.

Journey North is grateful to the volunteers and regional experts who communicate regularly with Gail and who agree to participate in Journey North’s efforts to increase awareness of the population of Western monarchs. You can reach her at gail@swmonarchs.org
