The Monarch Beach Butterfly Sanctuary - Dana Point relies on contributions to support our mission of reversing the trend of declining numbers of the Monarch Butterfly. 

According to the Xerces Society for Invertebrae Conservation, the situation is worse than anyone has anticipated.

What Can You Do To Help the Monarch Butterfly?

Sadly, monarch butterflies are headed to extinction. To save them, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Wildlife Federation, and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation are working together to grow milkweed and other butterfly-friendly plants along the monarch’s main migration route from Minnesota to Mexico.

  • Establish a wildflower garden in your yard for pollinators like the monarch butterfly and honey bee.
  • Ask your local government and garden clubs to work together to establish pollinator wildflower gardens in city parks, etc.
  • Plant milkweed in your yard, or field.
  • Plant native wildflowers along your driveway and fencing.
  • Don’t spray chemical herbicides on your lawn, garden, or fields.
  • If your local electric authority sprays chemical herbicides under power lines on your property, contact them, complain and ask to be placed on the no-spray list.

Volunteer Time

There's always work that can be done to ensure the Monarch Butterflies have a safe, well kept place to stop on their migation.
