Let's Go! Discover Mexico’s Kingdom of the Monarchs
Join host Annie Van Dinther and guest Expedition Leaders Melissa Silver and Drew Hamilton for a journey into the monarchs’ realm. More than a hundred million of these vivid orange and black butterflies spend the winter in a compact 12-square-mile tract of fir forest in the Central Highlands of Mexico. Looking like autumn leaves, they cover the trunks and branches of trees—then, when the sun appears and warms the air, they take to the skies in a flurry of orange, their translucent wings backlit by the sun. In these roosting colonies, the monarchs find shelter and breed, nurturing a new generation that will fly north again come spring, making the long journey back to the northeast U.S. and southern Canada. In this webinar, take a virtual journey to the protected migration sanctuaries and the wonders that abide there. Learn about the monarchs’ amazing biology and behavior, and gain insight into the human dimensions of this region, too, with a look at history, gastronomy and cultural traditions. Join us to discover an authentic slice of Mexico, where the national government and local communities alike are committed to protecting and treasuring this piece of world heritage in the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve.
