Citizen Scientists and the Fight to Save Monarch Butterflies
For the week of August 11th, 2013
A growing number of Americans are making important contributions to scientific research on a volunteer basis. These so-called “citizen scientists” are at work here in Minnesota, helping to monitor the larva of monarch butterflies. Monarchs are not only beautiful but also play a critical role in our ecology. This week on Access Minnesota, University of Minnesota researcher Karen Oberhauser discusses recent data that helps us to better understand these fragile creatures.
