A monarch butterfly floats by and a child’s face lights up. Viewing the semi-annual monarch butterfly migration causes adult jaws to drop. To both young and old, the beautiful monarch butterfly is one of the most recognized and beloved of all insects. Their long-term survival, however, is being studied as concerns arise about threats to the monarch butterfly’s existence. Deforestation in Mexico, where the monarch butterflies migrate to when the weather turns cold, threatens the monarch’s winter habitat. The Gifted Tree now has a tree planting project in the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve, Michoacán, Mexico, to help reforest and conserve the monarch’s critical Mexico habitat. Plant your memorial or celebration tree in this location and help restore, protect, and save millions of monarch butterflies that have been impacted by deforestation.
