The Monarch Migration in our Changing Climate

Butterflies know no walls, but recent changes in our political landscape have created divisions throughout the Monarch butterfly corridor. Meanwhile, temperatures throughout the continent continue to escalate to unprecedented levels, year after year. What do these political and atmospheric changes suggest for pollinator advocacy, the Monarch butterfly migration in particular?

Join us for a lively and timely discussion with panelists from Mexico, the U.S and Canada that will explore the intersections and consequences of politics and pollinators, including:

Dr. Chip Taylor, founder of Monarch WatchElizabeth Howard, founder of Journey NorthDr. Carlos Galindo Leal, Director of Scientific Communcation at the National Commission of Biodiversity in Mexico (CONABIO)Dr. Louise Hénault-Ethier, Director of Science, the David Suzuki Foundation, Montréal
