( Back to Monarch Conservation in Mexico)

The pictures below show the same part of El Rosario monarch sanctuary. Look for ways that butterflies and people are using the forest.

Looking down from a helicopter at a butterfly colony in El Rosario, the butterflies make the trees look orange.

In the satellite view below, the red rectangle shows where the butterfly colony pictured above was located. See El Rosario on Google Maps. Zoom in for a close look at the forest. Then zoom out to see patterns of land-use in the region.
