North Dakota Pollinator Conservation

North Dakota Monarch Butterfly and Native Pollinator Strategy

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department and numerous other partners developed a North Dakota Monarch Butterfly and Native Pollinator Strategy (pdf) in 2016. It was revised in the spring of 2018 and includes partner updates on pollinator conservation progress. This strategy describes the efforts - habitat conservation, education and outreach, and research and monitoring - that have recently been implemented or are proposed to be implemented for monarchs and other native pollinators in North Dakota. The strategy will be a “living document” for the next 5 years, or until 2020, to implement conservation efforts and demonstrate success so that the monarch and other important native pollinators are not listed as threatened or endangered.
