Monarchs are the only known species of butterfly to migrate each year, seeking warmer climates during the winter and abundant food in the summer.
Unfortunately, modern pesticides are killing milkweed in the U.S., a primary source of nutrition, while illegal loggers destroy their habitat in Mexico.
The Forests For Monarchs project has added more than five million trees since 1997 to previously deforested areas of Central Mexico. As the trees grow, they serve as a climatic buffer that protects butterflies from harsh weather. And when sustainably harvested, the trees provide a renewable source of income for local residents.
Each year, millions of Monarch butterflies migrate south each fall to spend their winters in the warmer climates of Mexico. Remarkably, these magnificent creatures manage to return to the same grove each year through a complex navigating system.
