Monarch Butterfly Double Sided Stainless Steel Locket -- Danaus plexippus
The iconic rock star of the butterfly world, with successive generations working their way north during the summer and a "super generation" migrating to overwintering areas in Mexico and California.
Our Pacific Northwest monarchs are struggling, with populations in rapid decline. In 2019 we saw two total in Northern Oregon while doing field work. There are some data points indicating that they may bounce back going forward. Time will tell.
Specimens we use are sourced from butterfly farms working with healthier east coast populations.
