Your Symbolic Monarch butterflies are in Mexico and school visits are underway.

Visits Begin

Estela Romero is now traveling to visit students in schools surrounding the monarch sanctuaries in Mexico. She brings Ambassador Butterflies and teaches students about monarch conservation in Mexico. Students are thrilled to receive the symbolic monarchs made by students in the United States and Canada. She sends you this message:

“At every single school the exchange of information about monarch butterfly conservation brings a variety of emotions, reactions, questions and discussions! All the students and teachers show great interest in learning about their neighboring cultures - the United States and Canada - and sharing with them some of ours. This makes a wonderful exchange of the responsibility for monarch conservation across borders.” 

All school visits will be completed by early February when you will be able to search for your butterfly.
