Monarchs need your help. Their numbers continue to decline and it's going to take innovative action to provide the resources butterflies need to live and increase their population. We (Sustainable Monarch, 501c3) propose to establish a network of butterfly reserves within migratory pathways to accomplish monarch recovery. Your contributions will be leveraged as matching funds to attract new partnerships to purchase properties, work with landowners on conservation easements and develop economic incentives to bolster wildflower plantings across North America. Sustainable Monarch Reserves will serve as the anchor that other stewardship activities can be planned around to improve connectivity & create a dynamic ecosystem that gives monarchs the ability to move across the landscape within preserved corridors. Suitable properties are available & there are landowners willing to work with us.
Through a combination of strategies, like those listed above and cooperative agreements, we will protect important sites for monarchs & other butterflies. The novel approaches include creating what, to our knowledge, is the first land trust dedicated to saving the places monarchs need & managing them specifically for the native plants that support the butterfly life cycle into the future. Communities will see value from vegetation intended to increase monarch numbers through economic activity generated by tourism, market-based natural products and other benefits of nature that people enjoy.
