The Monarch Watch Tag Recovery Database (monarchwatch.org/recoveries) has been updated – more than 16,000 records now, in a searchable format. Check to see if any of your tags were recovered in Mexico this year :-)
Tip: to generate a list of all tags reported to us this year, simply select 2012 from the “Year” dropdown menu in the “Recovery Information” section and hit the “Submit” button.
Thanks to all of you who have participated in the tagging program and to those who have contributed to the tag recovery fund. These contributions are needed since we compensate the ejido members in Mexico who search for the tags among the dead butterflies beneath the colonies. And, thanks to many people who helped acquire the tags in Mexico in our – and your – behalf.
