Nationwide Candidate Conservation Agreement for Monarch Butterfly on Energy and Transportation Lands Updated:06/2021

The monarch butterfly Candidate Conservation Agreement (CCAA) with Assurance with integrated Candidate Conservation Agreement (CCA) for energy and transportation lands is a remarkable opportunity to help the monarch and other pollinators. More than 45 energy and transmission companies and state departments of transportation are voluntarily committing time and funding to carry out monarch butterfly-friendly management practices on millions of acres in rights of way. In turn, their actions may preclude the need to list the monarch or could speed recovery if the monarch is listed under the Endangered Species Act. Additionally, the agreement provides participants regulatory assurances that additional conservation measures will not be required if the monarch is protected under the ESA.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has approved an “enhancement of survival” permit application associated with this agreement. The permit holder is the University of Illinois-Chicago, which is coordinating participation.
