Red Barn event at Wenatchee River Institute/Zoom hybrid: Western Monarchs: Migration, Adaptation and Resilience by David G James February 22, 2023. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., start at 7:00 p.m.
This presentation by Dr. David G. James will provide the results of recent research on the migration biology of monarchs in the Pacific Northwest, as well as insights into the ability of monarchs to adapt to a warming climate. Despite reports to the contrary, the monarch does not face irretrievable doom and gloom. Instead, it is a shining example of how an insect can alter its biology to better suit a changing environment. Threats do exist to monarch survival (pesticides, host plant loss, parasites) however, none are overwhelming. A holistic view of monarch biology and ecology better describes the ability of this species to persist and show resilience.
