On May 9, 2015, dozens of teams of birders will head out into the field to find as many species of birds as possible, each team raising funds for a conservation cause. Again this year a team known as the Monarchists will be raising money for the Cape May Monarch Monitoring Project.
The team is comprised of active and former volunteers with the MMP. We compete in the "Carbon Footprint" category, traveling without the use of any motorized vehicle, searching for birds around Cape May traveling only by bicycle or foot. In 2013 and 2014 we were the winners in this category!
The real winners, however, are the monarch butterflies. The World Series of Birding is the largest source of funding for the Monarch Monitoring Project. We ask all fans of our project to learn about this event and to help us raise money to support our research and education efforts, either by spreading the word and/or by making a direct contribution.
