Results from the 2016 Western Monarch Thanksgiving Count are now available!

Thanks to the efforts of so many people, this year’s WMTC tallied a total of 298,464 monarchs—a fraction of the 1.2 million monarchs recorded in the late 1990s. Although the total number of monarchs counted this year was greater than last, the difference is due to a large increase in volunteer effort. Counts at major sites were down when compared to recent years.
