Citizen Science Projects: Migration

Integrated Monarch Butterfly Monitoring Strategy

A national initiative to monitor monarch populations and habitat throughout the breeding range. The IMS uses a spatially balanced sampling scheme and draws from existing citizen science programs to deliver a suite of protocols that capture many aspects of habitat quality, threats, and monarch use of that habitat. Data gathered through the IMS contribute to existing population and habitat models that inform broad scale monarch conservation!
