Transcript of Greeting:

"Hi my name is Jordi Honey-Rosés and I'm working for World Wildlife Fund here in Mexico on monarch butterfly conservation and forest protection.

"The main project here with World Wildlife Fund is the Monarch Butterfly Conservation Fund which was established in 2000 during the creation of the new protected area.

"The idea, simply put, was to convert logging permits into trees, and doing that by helping the communities that previously had logging permits and paying them for no longer logging. We also want to work on reforestation and also law enforcement. Because even though planting trees is important we feel it is important to also project the 60 or 70 year old trees that are already standing."
