Event Type: 

A decline in the Monarch butterfly population associated with habitat loss, as well as a range of other factors, has led to calls for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to investigate the need to list it as a threatened or endangered species. The decline has also sparked intensified efforts into habitat restoration to mitigate or even potentially reverse the decline. The objective of this research was to evaluate farmer interest in restoring Monarch habitat on the North Central U.S. farm landscape. Visit the Econ website for more detail.
