Migrating Monarchs

Every year monarch butterflies begin a journey north from their overwintering grounds in Mexican forests. The epic migration spans generations and the better part of a continent. And it touches the lives of countless scientists and citizens. Check out our new Google Earth tour, produced by Atlantic Public Media, in partnership with the Encyclopedia of Life and a Google Outreach Developer Grant.

Watch the tour with Google Earth by downloading the KMZ file, or on YouTube:

  3. I would be honored if you would check out my Award Winning book…MONARCH MAGIC (Ideals Publications) and view my web site http://www.monarchbutterflyusa.com. I wrote this book, critiqued by Dr. Lincoln Brower, to help preserve the milkweed habitat and engage children and adults in the wondeful world of the inspiring monarch! Lynn M. Rosenblatt
