2018 Monarch Conservation Webinar Series
Partnering to conserve the monarch butterfly migration
Join us for the 2018 Monarch Conservation Webinar Series, hosted by the Monarch Joint Venture and the USFWS National Conservation Training Center! On the 4th Tuesday of each month, we will dive into a new monarch conservation topic with expertise and experience from the MJV partnership and other organizations. Click on the title of a webinar below to register today.
Our first webinar of the year will start with a big picture perspective on monarch conservation by MJV Coordinator, Wendy Caldwell. Wendy will describe the conservation goals for monarchs in North America and a broad scale approach for engaging partners to help achieve those goals. From the perspective of the national Monarch Conservation Implementation Plan, she will illustrate how efforts across scales and topics are integrating for improved success in species recovery. Creating habitat for monarchs, other pollinators, wildlife and ecosystem services is a primary outcome of a broader strategy to engage, educate, and inspire new conservationists. Everyone has a role to play in protecting the monarch migration. This webinar will cover how MJV’s implementation pillars (habitat creation, research/monitoring, and education/outreach) work together to help us achieve our monarch and habitat targets. Join us on February 27th to set the tone for 2018 as a year of cooperation and coordination for monarchs! Register here. View the full series below and on our events page.
Webinar titles may be updated and additional presenters may be added to a webinar as the event approaches. More information and a description of each webinar will be available on our events page approximately one month before the webinar date, or earlier. If you register early you will receive email updates on the webinars you have signed up for as information becomes available, so register today. Don’t miss out on our exciting 2018 series!
