We have been receiving lots of questions about when the 2009 season tag recoveries will be posted. We do not have a large number of them at this point due to the fact that we did not make our annual trek to the monarch overwintering area in Mexico. As you may know, the heart of the monarch overwintering area was devastated by heavy rainfall, hail, landslides, and flooding earlier this year – you can read about this disaster of extraordinary proportions right here at
We have posted a preliminary list of 2009 season tag recoveries (from Canada, the U.S., and Mexico) and will be adding to it as additional reports come in. Rest assured, we will eventually have all of the recovery data out of Mexico (it is likely to be a large number of tags due to the storms) and will add them to our tag recovery database as soon as possible.
