Leo's Pollinators

Butterfly Royalty

Monarchs are a butterfly most people would recognize, but this royal butterfly is having a hard time! So the PollinHeads are helping Vicky from the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority to net and tag some Monarchs. It's one of the largest and oldest citizen science projects in the world! All to keep an eye on this migrating pollinator. The Monarch Butterflies have the very important and also exhausting job of pollinating wildflowers on their journey back from their winter home in Mexico! We definitely want to keep their population thriving so we don't lose this very important pollinator.
