Posted @withregram • @nationalwildlife Eastern Monarchs Show a Positive Outlook 👍
The latest results of the annual survey of eastern monarchs overwintering in the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve, located in south-central Mexico, showed they occupied an estimated 2.84 hectares of forest during the winter of 2021–22. 🌎
“The positive survey results reported by WWF Mexico are a bright light for this iconic species. Unfortunately, monarchs continue to face a series of natural and man-made challenges that cannot be underestimated,” said Dr. Rebeca Quiñonez-Piñón, chief monarch recovery strategist for the National Wildlife Federation. ✅
5 Tips to Help Eastern Monarch Butterflies: ⭐
🦋 Gardening for wildlife by planting native milkweed and native nectar plants.
🦋 Reducing the use of pesticides.
🦋 Encouraging local leaders to join the Mayors’ Monarch Pledge.
🦋 Engaging in community conservation actions such as habitat restoration, education, and outreach.
🦋 Enrolling in monarch conservation, and community-based science opportunities in your community.

Climate is one of the major factors that limit bird species’ ranges. 🦆
Changing temperatures affects bird populations and their migration patterns. 🦆
Reducing your carbon footprint, planting native plants, protecting natural areas and voting for people who care are ways to combat climate change and its impacts on birds. 🐤
