>==========================================
>
>1) Status of the Population
>
>These updates are full of subjective opinions and this one is no 
>exception. Last year on the trip to Mexico in mid March, I had the 
>opportunity to watch the monarchs that were streaming north from the 
>overwintering sites. I was disappointed by the weak flight and what 
>appeared to be the poor condition of the butterflies. I couldn't 
>imagine how this torn and tattered population could reach the states 
>and reproduce and increase the population from the all time low of 
>2.19 hectares measured for the winter of 2004-2005 - but they did. I 
>underestimated the capacity of the monarchs to survive and reproduce 
>once again. ...

>==========================================

>2) Tag Recoveries
>
>Sarah Schmidt has been assembling the data from the recovered tags, 
>a much easier process now that all the records from the datasheets 
>have been entered into a database. Most of the recoveries from 
>Mexico will be posted during the first weekend in April and all of 
>the recoveries will be posted by the end of April. ...

>==========================================
>
>3) Convergence of Monarch Experts and Filmmakers
>
>Although I've run into Bill Calvert and his tour groups on many of 
>my trips to Mexico - and I did this year as well - I'm more likely 
>to encounter other monarch experts at meetings rather than in 
>Mexico. So, it was quite extraordinary to meet up with a number of 
>monarch experts, including some I hadn't met before, on my recent 
>trip to Mexico. ... When monarch folks get together, the talk tends 
>to focus on monarch lore and what we know and don't know about these 
>butterflies. One of the topics that arose during this discussion was 
>the geographic composition of the monarch colonies. ...

>4) Monarch Waystation #500
>
>Congratulations go out to Tom Murphy of Cannon Falls, MN who 
>recently applied for certification of his milkweed/monarch habitat 
>and is now the proud caretaker of Monarch Waystation #500. ... We 
>are a long way from our goal of 10,000 Monarch Waystations in the 
>first three years of the program (started almost one year ago) but 
>we hope to pick up steam this year and see a dramatic increase in 
>the number of milkweed/monarch habitats created all over North 
>America, and around the world. ...

>5) Monarchs in Peru
>
>Each month at Monarch Watch brings something new. This month was 
>eventful for a number of reasons, among which was the arrival of an 
>email from Cristina Loayza, a teacher at the Leonardo Da Vinci 
>school in Lima, Peru. In her email, Cristina described a monarch 
>breeding program being used in the school to introduce students to 
>science. This program is a "wow!" for two reasons: it is the only 
>school program that I know of that uses monarchs to educate students 
>outside of North America and, by being in Lima, Peru, the location 
>is close to the known southern limit of monarchs in western South America. ...

>6) Monarch Watch Spring Open House and Plant Fundraiser
>
>You are cordially invited to join us on Saturday, May 13th 8am-3pm 
>for an Open House and Plant Fundraiser at our facilities on West 
>Campus at the University of Kansas in Lawrence. We are located in 
>Foley Hall (2021 Constant Avenue) near the greenhouse. Nearly 4,000 
>butterfly plants (both annuals and perennials) including seedlings 
>of seven milkweed species, will be available (modest contributions 
>are suggested). We will provide refreshments, lots of show & tell, 
>videos and games for children, iChat videoconferencing 
>demonstrations, and, of course, monarch butterflies!
>
>We hope to see you there, but if you can't make it to Lawrence we'll 
>have "live" photos and maybe a webcam or two for you to check out 
>online during the day - for more information and a map visit

>==========================================
>
>7) Monarch Watch Shop
>
>We're currently running a "secret sale" - well I guess it's not much 
>of a secret anymore ;-) - that includes 30% off most of our 
>t-shirts. To see all of the items on sale right now visit
>
>http://shop.monarchwatch.org/category.aspx?c=sale_items
>
>We are in the middle of a big revision of our online storefront, 
>loading it up with items we think you'll like (in addition to all of 
>our "traditional items" - tagging kits, rearing kits, etc.), and 
>making it easier to find the items you want. If you have any 
>comments or suggestions for improvement please feel free to drop us 
>a line at [log in to unmask] anytime - we'd love to hear from you.
>
>Remember, every purchase from the Monarch Watch Shop supports our 
>educational, conservation and research programs so be sure to keep 
>us in mind when you're doing a little shopping:
