 Let's get started...
 
 
Monarchs are famous for their impressive migrations. For example, some eastern monarchs migrate from their over-wintering grounds in Central Mexico and travel 3,000 miles to places in Canada. Which of the options below make THIS migration different from other species who also migrate, like birds and whales? (Monarch Joint Venture)
When monarch butterflies migrate, they travel farther distances than any other migrating species.
It usually takes 4 generations of Monarchs to make the trip. The butterfly who began the journey, won’t live long enough to get to their winter destination.
Monarchs are so focused on travel, they do not eat for the entire duration of their migration.
How long does each generation of Monarch butterflies live? (U.S.Forest Service)
1-2 weeks
2-6 weeks
2 months
True or False - Each fall, all the North American monarchs migrate to the same southern location for winter. (U.S. Forest Service)
TRUE - Monarchs in different parts of North America all migrate to winter together in Central Mexico.
FALSE - Monarchs in different parts of North America will travel to multiple locations such as Central Mexico and the California Coast for winter.
Monarchs are born with an innate knowledge of the direction they need to travel. But how do they know that they are flying in the right direction? (American Association For The Advancement Of Science)
They use a built in, time-telling compass! They follow the horizontal position of the sun to know which direction they are moving. Since the sun moves throughout the day, they use their time-telling antennae to know which direction that is at any given time!
They refer to a built in road map! Programmed into their brain from birth is an exact map of the path they must take for migration.
They use monarch echolocation! Much like whales, Monarch butterflies emit tiny, soft clicking sounds to help them find food and to aid in their sense of direction. The sounds are so small, they are undetected by human ears!
The numbers of monarchs are falling rapidly and they are now an endangered species. As an example, how much do you think the population of monarchs wintering in Mexico decreased just this past year?
15% fewer than the season prior .
37% fewer than the season prior.
53% fewer than the season prior.
To help monarch butterflies, we must plant milkweed for them to lay their eggs on and to feed their growing caterpillars. True or False - Any type of milkweed will become a healthy monarch habitat.
TRUE- Any type of milkweed that can be found at a plant nursery will do!
FALSE- Only native milkweed (milkweed that has evolved to grow in my area) is right for Monarchs.
Which of the actions can we take now to help save monarch butterflies from extinction?
Plant NATIVE milkweed in your yard and in the yard of your friends and family.
Plant other flowering plants to feed them (native flowers are best!)
Reach out to representatives and ask them to help take action.
All of the above
