• Pacific Grove butterflies dispersing

    Jessica Griffiths of Cal Poly Monarch Alert reports that numbers dropped by about a third at the PG Monarch Sanctuary and declined at all other sites, as monarchs across the county began dispersing after mating.

    Latest numbers will be up in graph form on the Cal Poly Monarch Alert  website soon:


    Erica J. Krygsman (field coordinator for Monarch Alert in Monterey County) and Ryan Slack did the count on the 7th and 8th of February.
    “Temperatures were warm and skies were clear,” Erica reported. ” The overall average number of monarchs counted throughout Monterey county decreased during this week of counts. The average number of monarchs counted at the Pacific Grove Sanctuary was 1,732. No clusters were observed at Point Lobos, Andrew Molera, or Plaskett Creek.”

    Next counts are scheduled to occur between 14 and 16 of February.
