Favorable winds for migration are predicted for the next three days, as well, so we're hopeful that lots of monarchs are on their way. Of course we could be disappointed again. The monarch population has plummeted, and this has caught the attention of the press and of New Jersey lawmakers, as noted earlier in this blog. Our project was quoted again today in The Press of Atlantic City, you can see that article here. We were visited by a photographer and another reporter from The Press of Atlantic City today, and we talked by phone with a reporter from the Philadelphia Inquirer. Tomorrow a report from NJTV (which produces news and feature programming for public television stations in New Jersey) is coming to interview the team. Monarchs are in trouble, so it's crucial that we spread the word about their plight and about possible solutions. Responding to the reporters can take a lot of time, but we believe it's time well spent, and we welcome their questions and their visits. Keep an eye on the blog, we'll continue to link to all the stories we see where members of our team are interviewed.
