    In 2016, NFWF developed its first formal partnership with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) – an effort focused on monarch butterfly recovery. The $150,000 in USGS funding is dedicated to research on monarch habitat restoration. The knowledge gained from these projects will be used to ensure future monarch restoration efforts are even more efficient and effective at supporting the goal of increasing monarch butterfly populations.
