    Karen Oberhauser from the University of Minnesota, writes about the Monarch migration in North America.

    “Monarch numbers are declining; this decline is statistically significant and readily apparent from data on the area occupied by monarchs on the overwintering roost in Mexico. While we saw more monarchs during the summer of 2014 than we did last year or the year before, and will thus hopefully see more in Mexico this winter, it’s unlikely that the population will be anywhere near as large as it was a decade ago. For many of us, this is incredibly sad.”
