Thank you Adriana Gores for your thoughtful letter (Re: “Losing the Monarchs”) regarding the Monarch decline and ongoing milkweed debate. 

As scientists continue to promote a theory of entropy, Santa Cruz locals have a different perspective. While the numbers of Monarchs migrating to overwintering sites have declined, the Monarch population throughout Santa Cruz has had a booming year, creating a “Santa Cruz Paradox.”  Monarchs are everywhere!

Thanks to residents planting beautiful pollinator gardens during the pandemic, Santa Cruz has become an ideal habitat for Monarchs to live and breed. The Monarchs are here to stay!!
