Dear Insectamonarca friends,
We hope you will enjoy the spring issue of Butterflies and Gardens at http://happytonics.wordpress.com/
We are sad to report that the monarchs will be migrating back to the USA with the lowest numbers since the 1970s when they were first recorded. Read all about the floods and mudslides in Mexico. Chip Taylor, University of Kansas and Monarch Watch, points out that illegal deforestation has compromised the Mexican habitats for many years.
May we all pay attention to promoting biodiversity and reforestation for the monarch butterfly and pollinating species including native bees.
