Monarch Watch is turning 20 and needs your help! If you are in a position to offer financial support to Monarch Watch (or if you know someone who might be), please consider making a fully tax-deductible donation of any amount during our 2011 “Chip in for Monarch Watch” fundraising campaign.

It is no secret that Monarch Watch founder and director Chip Taylor is passionate about monarchs and Monarch Watch – he is genuinely concerned about the future of the monarch migration and that of our program as well. In honor of Chip we officially launched in 2009 the now annual “Chip in for Monarch Watch” fundraising campaign – a chance for Monarch Watchers, colleagues, friends, and family across the planet to show their support for Chip and the Monarch Watch program he brought to life two decades ago.

Last year’s campaign was a huge success, raising $23,000 via nearly 500 donors – wow!

We encourage you to spend a little time reading through previous donor comments – the connections that are facilitated by monarchs and Monarch Watch are truly extraordinary.

Thank you for your continued support!

    The number of adult Monarchs seems to be way down. last year I planted a bed of Mexican milkweed. I had over a 100 larva during the month of Sept.They literally ate every plant I had.This year I doubled the number of plants. It’s been a difficult task this year with the dought and spider mites. So now I have a beautiful bed ripe for eating and so far only 11 larva and 2 adults have come. I feel sorry for those heading to Texas.
