Restore the monarch butterfly habitat by planting one million trees in 2015!

Monarch butterflies travel thousands of miles each year to "overwinter" in the forests of sunny Mexico. The Highlands of Michoacán—a popular monarch butterfly destination—were once heavily forested, but in recent decades these forests have been cleared and degraded at an alarming rate for the extraction of timber, agricultural conversion, and domestic wood. The Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve (MBBR) has been planting trees in this region for the past several years, but local farm families have been illegally cutting their protected trees as well. The severe loss of forest cover decreases the monarch butterflies' overwintering area, and changes the climate patterns that are ideal for the reproduction and survival of these amazing butterflies. Without a place to overwinter, the monarch Butterfly will eventually cease to exist.

In 2015, Forests for Monarchs, a program of La Cruz Habitat Protection Project, is on a robust mission to plant one million trees in the MBBR! Restoring forest in and around the monarch butterfly over-wintering habitat is a crucial step in helping to secure the long-term survival of the monarchs and their unique migration. The new forests also help restore the health of the environment and return the land to its native state.

You can help. Just $25 plants 50 trees in the Highlands of Michoacán, reforesting 0.1 acres of deforested land. A $50 donation will plant 100 trees, which offsets one day of logging by locals. We're working to help La Cruz Habitat Protection Project plant one million trees in 2015!


Forests for Monarchs is a project of La Cruz Habitat Protection Project, Inc., a U.S. non-profit organization, in partnership with La Cruz Habitat Protection Project - Mexico in support of the planting and management of sustainable new forests in Michoacan, Mexico and beyond.
