Save Monarch Butterfly Habitat

From $5.00

Quantity:


Monarch butterflies travel thousands of miles each year to "overwinter" in the forests of sunny Mexico. The forests provide unique conditions which enable these gorgeous creatures to survive in freezing temperatures and conserve energy stores until their spring re-migration.

In recent decades, however, the forests on which these butterflies depend have been cleared at an alarming rate, leaving the butterflies vulnerable and harming local communities by contributing to soil degradation and the drying up of natural springs.

You can help by funding the planting of tree seedlings in the butterflies' overwintering area in Michoacán, Mexico. As the trees grow, they serve as a climatic buffer that protects butterflies from harsh weather. And when sustainably harvested, the trees provide a renewable source of income for local residents. Choose to plant 50 Trees ($25.00) or 100 Trees ($50.00).


Report from the Field

2012 Update from La Cruz Habitat Protection Project (LHPP)

The Forests For Monarchs project has added more than six million trees since 1997 to previously deforested areas of Central Mexico.

Recently, local communities report seeing the butterflies roosting on relatively young trees. In some areas, this is the first time in a decade that the monarchs have been seen.


Forests for Monarchs is a project of La Cruz Habitat Protection Project, Inc., a U.S. non-profit organization, in partnership with La Cruz Habitat Protection Project - Mexico in support of the planting and management of sustainable new forests in Michoacan, Mexico and beyond.
