Monarch Conservation in Mexico

Thanks to Donors
Many people include financial support for monarch conservation as part of the Symbolic Migration each fall. Journey North forwards the donations to the Monarch Butterfly Fund, where Dr. Karen Oberhauser serves as president. Today, she sends a letter of thanks and explains how the funds are used in Mexico.

"Even though it's January now, it won't be long before the spring migration begins. You can feel proud of the help you provided to continue this migration," says Dr. Oberhauser in her letter.
