Dr. Karen Oberhauser is the Director of the University of Wisconsin – Madison Arboretum, where she is continuing her 30 years of research on the biology and conservation of the monarch butterfly.

Dr. Oberhauser also co-chairs the steering committee of the Monarch Joint Venture, a 60+ organization partnership for monarch conservation across their migratory range in the U.S. She has written extensively in peer-reviewed journals and books on monarch ecology and conservation, including several papers on the level of risk generated by genetically-modified corn and the herbicide Round-Up on monarch populations.
