North American Conference on the Monarch

Subject: North American Conference on the Monarch Butterfly 
Date: Sun, 06 Jul 1997 14:05:37 -0700 


A North American Conference on the Monarch Butterfly will be held in
Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico from Monday, November 10 through Saturday,
November 15, 1997. The ultimate goal of the conference will be to
develop a Tri-National North American strategy for the protection of
Monarch butterflies.

The objectives of the conference will be:

1) to contribute to our understanding of the conservation issues
surrounding the Monarch butterfly from a tri-national and a
multidisciplanary perspective; 2) to provide a forum for dialog among
people from Canada, Mexico, the United States and other countries
interested in the many facets of Monarch butterfly biology and
conservation, including educators, government officials, representatives
of conservation groups and scientists; 3) to present initiatives
addressing Monarch butterfly ecology, behavior and conservation; and 4)
identify and propose actions which address both the conservation
requirements of the Monarch butterfly and associated human needs.

The conference will include three days of oral and poster presentations
in four thematic areas: 1) Biology, including ecology, reproduction,
larval ecology, overwintering biology and migration; 2) Education,
including both formal and informal outreach programs, commerce for
educational purposes,and butterfly gardening; 3) Conservation and
Protection, including population dynamics and monitoring, pesticides and
pollutants,socioeconomic problems associated with conservation,
restoration projects,reserves and habitat management; and 4)
Socioeconomic Issues, including patterns of land use, land
ownership/development and environmental deterioration, public
participation in consensus building processes, costs and benefits of
ecotourism, and trade in Monarch products.

The first three days of the conference will be followed by 2 days of
open public symposia consisting of roundtable discussions among
specialists and representatives of all stakeholders. Specific subjects
will include: 1) monitoring and data collection; 2) education and
communication strategies; 3) sustainable development and Monarch
conservation in breeding habitat and overwintering sites in Mexico and
California; 4) biodiversity and resource management; and 5) national and
international laws, policies and regulations. The final day of the
conference will be used to integrate the symposia reports into items to
be considered for a tri-national action plan.

Hello everyone,
         I am a research assistant for Irene Pisanty of the Center for
Environmental Cooperation (CEC) and also part of the organizing
committee for the Monarch Butterfly Conference.
The following is a PRELIMINARY list of people who have been involved
with monarch butterflies within the past few years. In order to invite
people to this conference (and thus make it successful!), I need the
addresses, phone#s,fax#s, email addresses. If you know of any
information which is needed about the following people, or know of
anyone else who has worked with monarchs and would be interested in the
conference, please email me.

I know the list is quite long, but any help would be much appreciated.
