THE STORY:

SAVE THE MAGIC OF THE MONARCH MIGRATION

The children in our preschool classroom are looking forward to the day when they can visit the Monarch butterflies' winter home....and the children who live there. This dream may not become a reality....

A New Conservation Initiative
The Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary Foundation (MBSF) was established in August, 1997 by scientists and educators concerned about the rapid loss of habitat. Monarch biologist Dr. Lincoln Brower, who has conducted research in the Mexican sanctuaries for over two decades, will serve as Chairman of the MBSF Board"Over the past 20 years, millions of dollars have been directed toward monarch conservation in Mexico, but have failed to address long-term conservation of the dwindling oyamel forest ecosystem. At the same time, the economic needs of the people who depend on the forest for survival have never been adequately addressed. A solution is needed that will allow the people and the butterflies to coexist with the forest in a long-term sustainable manner."
