• Monarch Update

    By Jessica Griffith
    We counted at PG on Friday Feb. 27.

    There were still 11,605 monarchs, and they were all still clustering in the pines and cypress trees outside of the Sanctuary boundaries. Not a single one on any eucalyptus! They were flying around and mating like crazy by 9 a.m. that morning.
    There were still around 900 monarchs at the private property site in Big Sur, but the monarchs are basically gone from all of the other sites. Just that site & the PG Monarch Sanctuary still have butterflies.

    This week will be our very last week of monarch counting, so stay tuned for one more update!
