Monarch numbers today better than we first thought

Monarch numbers turned out to be better than we first thought today; we didn't find them this morning in the gardens where they normally occur, but instead found many along the dune and tucked into a few yards where the English ivy vines have begun to bloom. Census numbers from today were similar to yesterday's. So it looks like the weekend will be good for viewing monarchs in Cape May.


  1. Hello! Is there a current (2017) census page? Thanks for all you do!!!

  2. We are having some website issues, we will try to find a way to get the census data out there as soon as possible.
