Chasing the Monarch Migration through Arizona

Sustainability Series

Gail Morris

  • Southwest Monarch Study Coordinator - A member
  •   of Monarch Joint Venture
  • Monarch Watch Conservation Specialist
  • Monarch Butterfly Fund Board Member

It was once believed that there were no monarch butterflies in Arizona, but instead through the power of a Citizen Science study monitoring monarch breeding habitats and their migration, it was discovered that Arizona could be the migration flyway funnel west of the Rockies.

Morris's studies of the monarch butterfly over the last eight years have made her the leading monarch conservation specialist in Arizona and the Southwest. She is a frequent educator for Southwest Monarch Study, Monarch Watch and Monarch Joint Venture.
