Unlike most of the dragonfly fauna of BC which stay put all year round, Green Darners are migratory. Like Monarchs, adults migrate north in the spring and it is their offspring, who emerge in late summer, that migrate back south. You can help conserve migratory dragonflies by report sightings to the Migratory Dragonfly Partnership.
