Monarch Tagging At DeKorte

This series of photos demonstrates the Monarch butterfly tagging ID process that took place at DeKorte last Friday afternoon by Aleshanee Mooney. The tag includes an identification number and email/phone number for the Monarch Watch program which participants can contact to receive or give information regarding monarch migration.

Scientists and naturalists who recapture the butterflies use data to determine the pathways taken by migrating monarchs, the influence of weather on the migration, population trends and other important information
