Southwest Monarch Study Updated:06/2022

The Southwest Monarch Study is researching the migration and breeding patterns of monarch butterflies in Arizona and the SouthWestern United States. It was once believed that monarch butterflies East of the Rocky Mountains flew to the mountains near Mexico City for the winter and monarchs West of the Rockies flew to the coast of California. Through Fall tagging in the Southwest (Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, California deserts, Utah and Western Colorado), we have learned that this is not always the case.

There is much more to learn about the wild monarch migration throughout the Southwestern states. If you love monarch butterflies, consider joining our study.
