What is the MLMP?

The Monarch Larva Monitoring Project (MLMP) involves volunteers from across North America and New Zealand in monarch research. It was developed in 1997 by researchers at the University of Minnesota to collect long-term data on larval monarch populations and milkweed habitats. The project focuses on monarch distribution and abundance during the breeding season.

As an MLMP volunteer, your contributions will aid in conserving monarchs and their threatened migratory phenomenon, and advance our understanding of butterfly ecology in general.
