Numbers continue to increase

The monarchs are coming!! With a whopping 63.05 monarchs an hour during our daily census today, this has been our highest number yet. The migration is not at its peak- it is only beginning. Remember to check out our website's data page for daily and weekly census updates. Here you can also compare our current data to the numbers we have had during past years around this time. Keep in mind that because this year's migration is delayed, our current numbers appear to be much lower than other years. Since the migrants seem to only be starting to make their way through Cape May now, we are hopeful that the numbers will catch up soon!
