You Can Help Monarchs
monarch's spectacular migration to Mexico is an endangered phenomenon.
Here are ways you can help.
Habitat Conservation in Mexico
The monarchs' winter sanctuaries in Mexico are critical to the survival
of their migration. The sanctuaries are now threatened by logging activities
and other deforestation. In August, 1997 a non-profit organization was
formed by scientists and educators concerned about the rapid loss of wintering
habitat in Mexico. Journey North urges you to consider ways you can support
monarch habitat in Mexico by contributing to the Monarch
Butterfly Sanctuary Foundation. Students participating in the Symbolic
Monarch Migration raised over $12,000 for habitat conservation in the
2006/2007 school year.
Monarch Habitat Where You Live
Plant a butterfly garden and help Unpave
the Way for monarchs. Even a small planting of milkweed for monarch
caterpillars and flowers with the adults' favorite nectar will attract
monarchs. For help with your garden, be sure to check the butterfly gardening
resources in the Unpave the Way section of this site. When your garden
is complete, report back to Journey North so we'll know where along the
migration trail your butterfly garden is located.
