All Classroom Ambassador Monarchs have been received by Ms. Estela Romero in Mexico and she has been busy delivering them to students. Her first visits were to the elementary, middle and high schools in Macheros, Mexico, which are at the base of the Cerro Pelon Sanctuary. 

Then, for the first time in its history, Ms. Romero brought the Symbolic Migration Project to the elementary school in the village of El Capulin. There was such excitement about not only receiving the Ambassadors but her lesson on the importance of forest conservation and the benefits of trees.

See photos and read about her visits at Symbolic Migration.

Over 225 Ambassadors have been delivered to date! Use the Search function at the top right of the Symbolic Migration Home page to locate your school/group/family or your town. Check back weekly!
