LIVE WEB EVENT WAS SO MUCH FUN! THANK YOU!
Watch Outdoor and Environmental Education staff, Al Woodhouse and Sean McCammon as they tag Monarch Butterflies as part of MonarchWatch’s migration monitoring and population assessment program. Streaming from SpruceHaven farm in Waterloo Ontario, Al and Sean answer questions about Monarchs and their life cycle.
Monarchs are an iconic species of butterfly. Their striking orange-and-black colouration is unmistakable as they glide over fields and gardens. For a species that holds such a close place in our hearts, we are falling short of protecting them. Their populations have been in decline for approximately 25 years, and Monarchs are now classified as “Endangered” in Canada.
