This article about Ventura=E2=80=99s overwintering sites states the=20
population is in decline, but it doesn=E2=80=99t show the public actual=20
Thanksgiving count data for the sites.

Three of Ventura=E2=80=99s largest overwintering sites occur in solitary=20
stands of blue gum eucalyptus trees where the tree cover has=20
been remained relatively stable and unchanged for the past=20
couple decades, hence there havn=E2=80=99t been substantial changes
that could influence Thanksgiving counts. If one looks at the past
17 years worth of count data for these three sites, no pattern=20
of population decline is evident at any of them:

geshack.us/a/img924/1545/HLASdR.jpg>

Also, if one looks at the total number of butterflies counted at=20
these three sites for the past 17 years no pattern of decline is
evident:
