The Western Monarch Thanksgiving & New year’southward Counts
The Western Monarch Thanksgiving and New Yr’due south Counts are the production of almanac monitoring efforts by volunteer community scientists to collect data on the condition of monarch populations overwintering along the California and Northern Baja, Mexico, coast (and a few sites from inland areas of California and Arizona). Thanks to the extraordinary efforts of these volunteers, nosotros have 25 years of information demonstrating that western monarchs have undergone a more 95% decline since the 1980s.

A total of 209 sites were surveyed, totaling 151,168 collywobbles counted in the Due west. As shown in the graph below, 195 sites were monitored during
the Thanksgiving and New Year’s Count. The comparison between the two counts reveals an average decrease of ~38% over the winter season, which aligns with the trends we usually witness.
