Saving the Monarchy!

Rachel Taylor TEDxSaltLakeCity June 2022

A 12 minute TEDx talk on Saving the Monarchy.

"A heartfelt and informative talk on how simple changes can make a big impact for monarchs and other pollinators, from a western state perspective but applicable to all monarchs." (Sageland Collaborative)


This one hour recording was done for the Conservation Garden Park in West Jordan, Utah. The webinar focuses on (1) the decline of the monarch, (2) an overview of the monarch lifecycle, including migration, and (3) what we can do to help
