Mexico and Monarch Butterflies
Plant trees, and save the Monarchs
You will directly support our Mexico planting projects and our partners Monarch Butterfly Foundation and UNAM (National Autonomous University of Mexico) to save and protect the at-risk Monarch Butterflies.
Saving a Natural Phenomenon
Every fall, the Monarch butterflies travel up to 3000 miles to spend winter in forests of Central Mexico to overwinter. This migration is breathtaking to see. Unfortunately, the pine and fir trees are being cut down due to illegal logging which brings down the temperature of their shelter. Sadly, more than half the butterflies don’t survive through winter.
Where You Plant in Mexico
The 19º 31' 26.7996" N and 100º 12' 17.19" W coordinates show the exact location of our planting site in Mexico. Your trees are planted along the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve in Central Mexico, where our incredible partners are working with the public to help save the Monarch butterflies from the effects of deforestation.Learn More
