Project Monarch Health, a citizen science project operated through the Odum School of Ecology at UGA, tracks the spread of a debilitating disease in wild monarch butterflies. This program, now in its 9th year, has just embarked on a NEW crowdfunding project via Georgia Funder.

Through this project, UGA researchers distribute free sampling kits to over 200 volunteers and report findings back to each participant.

Financial support for this project ended in 2013. To keep these efforts goingand develop new educational and outreach materials, organizers are seeking support from donors. To learn more about the project, its organizers, key findings, crowdfunding campaign, and view a video online, see:


No gift is too small when it comes to keeping this project running into the coming year. All donations are tax deductible, and 100% of the donations will go to support students and materials for Project Monarch Health. The Georgia Funder program is managed by the University of Georgia. Thank you for considering supporting this citizen science project.
