Don't be late. We want your butterflies to safely escape the long,
monarchs that we exchange are ambassadors that carry messages between

The symbolic monarch you make represents you and expresses your interest,
friendship, and appreciation for the role the Mexican people play in
So far symbolic

"We're Helping Monarchs"--Your
Donations at Work
Students' contributions have helped protect the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuaries
in Mexico in many ways. This year we hope for 100% participation! The sanctuaries
are not adequately protected. Deforestation threatens the habitat monarchs
need to survive. Saving the sanctuaries is a challenge because the people
who live there depend on the forest for survival too, just like the monarchs.
All student donations support the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary Foundation's
important work. Please help!
Visit the Monarch
Butterfly Sanctuary Foundation website for details.
Please write checks to:
The Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary Foundation
and enclose with your butterflies.
