The monarch population has experienced a dramatic decline over the last decade. What is causing this

decline? What does it mean for the future of the monarch population? This talk will review the factors

leading to the decline and will highlight critical actions that need to be taken. John Drummond has been

working with monarch butterflies for over 20 years. He has been tagging monarchs since 1993 and has

mentored monarch research students at Lafayette College, Easton, PA where he has been teaching for

10 years. More recently, his focus has been on monarch conservation education. “At this most critical

time for monarch butterflies, my goal is to inspire as many people as I can to engage in monarch

conservation efforts,” says Drummond.
