The Monarch Larva Monitoring Project (MLMP) is a citizen science
project involving volunteers from across the United States and Canada in monarch
research. It was developed by researchers at the University of Minnesota to collect
long-term data on larval monarch populations and milkweed habitat. The overarching
goal of the project is to better understand how and why monarch populations vary
in time and space, with a focus on monarch distribution and abundance
during the breeding season in North America.
volunteer, your contributions will aid in conserving monarchs and their threatened
migratory phenomenon, and advance our understanding of butterfly ecology in general.
