Hope in Collaboration: Landscape Level Engagement for Monarchs and Pollinators
September 15, 1:30pm • Monarch butterflies, which many view as a symbol of hope and renewal, are on the verge of being listed on the US Endangered Species Act. With a migratory range spanning three countries and thousands of miles, our challenge is to build partnerships across diverse landscapes, seemingly unrelated sectors, and political boundaries. In this session, you will hear directly from the Monarch Joint Venture (MJV), a national non-profit organization and a partnership of over 120 federal and state agencies, non-governmental organizations, businesses, and academic programs working together to protect the monarch migration across the United States. Learn about MJV’s work bringing “all hands on deck” for monarchs and pollinators from Associate Director Christine Sanderson and find out more about how voluntary conservation actions across North America foster hope for monarchs and other challenging conservation issues of our day.
