Female Monarchs Declining

Studies of the monarch butterflies' migration patterns have revealed a declining population of female monarchs. Amy Davis from the University of Georgia in Athens was the first to notice the stark difference in the number of males to females. In her 2008 study, only 35% of the population was female. Startled by the figures, Davis researched past studies and found a drastic downturn of the gender. For more information, click below:
