The goal of the MLMP is to better understand how and why monarch populations vary, with a focus on their distribution and abundance during the breeding season in North America. Volunteers in the United States, Canada and Mexico aid in conserving monarchs and advance understanding of butterfly ecology and migration in general.

Note that the events at environmental education centers will only display in the region in which they are located, even though they serve residents from adjacent areas.
