Monarch & Pollinator Presentations: Monarch Joint Venture and our partners have developed basic overview presentations of monarch and pollinator biology and conservation for public use. These presentations may be downloaded for any non-commercial use (for education only). You may adapt the presentations that are by the Monarch Joint Venture.
IMPORTANT: The appropriate organization listed in the powerpoint should be credited as a source of the material, and photo and graphic credits should always remain as they are displayed in the original presentation. You may add or remove slides depending on your needs in the Monarch Joint Venture presentations.
To download, use the following link to view the presentations on Google Drive and then use the down arrow button at the top of the preview to download the presentation. Download the presentations here.
