3.  Repeat!  Keep looking for and submitting observations of monarchs and milkweeds.

 

Then What?

Once you submit observations to WyoBio, they will be reviewed by a scientist and approved if correct and put into our growing database that helps us understand where these wonderful butterflies and plants live.  You will get feedback on your observations within a couple of weeks!

By engaging the public in citizen science projects like the Monarchs and Milkweeds, the Biodiversity Institute hopes we can better understand where monarchs travel through Wyoming, what time of year, how many, and whether they reproduce here.  We can also find where the 10+ species of milkweeds exist, see if they're hosts to any monarch young
