The purpose of this guide is to educate people about the monarch butterfly and to provide recommendations to enhance its habitat and numbers. An overview of the monarch lifecycle and migration pattern is followed by a review of its habitat needs, both in its overwintering sites and in its summer breeding range, including New Jersey. The cultural and environmental significance of the monarch butterfly is described. The report summarizes the many factors contributing to population decline, as well as the efforts that have been made across the continent in the areas of monarch research, conservation, and public education. The final section contains actionable recommendations that governments, businesses, educational institutions, nonprofits and individuals in New Jersey can use in their efforts to aid the monarchs.
