Monarch Butterflies appear in large numbers in Sierra Gorda

Monarch Butterflies (Danaus plexippus) have started to appear all over Sierra Gorda, stopping off on their long migration to the fir forests further south. Roberto Pedraza, Technical Officer of Grupo Ecológico Sierra Gorda, WLT’s conservation partner in Mexico took this photograph on 22 November 2014. He noticed that the butterflies had returned to the same place that he remembered them visiting when he was a child. He told us: “When I was young, the oak branches bent under the weight of the butterflies. Today they are nothing compared with their former numbers, but it’s amazing how they ‘remember’ their wintering grounds in central Mexico, and the good spots to have a nap and a rest during the long journey.”
