Explore the Xerces Society’s many resources on monarchs and monarch conservation.

Eastern Monarch Conservation

Conservation of eastern monarchs—which breed east of the Rocky Mountains and overwinter in central Mexico—is an important part of Xerces’ work across the Midwest, Southern Great Plains, Northeast, and Southeast. Learn more about their needs and what we’re doing to help.

Western Monarch Conservation

A significant focus of our monarch conservation efforts focuses on western monarchs, which breed west of the Rocky Mountains and generally overwinter in coastal California. Western monarchs are less well-studied—yet they are at a greater risk of extinction as their eastern counterparts.
