Migrating Monarchs

As of 2022, the migratory monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus plexippus) became listed as Endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species*.  This means the species is likely to go extinct without significant intervention. Visit our new Learning Hot Spot, Migrating Monarchs, to learn more about these iconic orange and black butterflies and ways you can help with their conservation. The Migrating Monarchs Learning Hot Spot is located past the Berman Museum . Be sure to check out seven more Learning Hot Spots throughout the AM&G grounds.
