Monarch Butterfly Fund Wraps Up 2015 Successfully!

The monarchs have arrived in Mexico! Our local partner Alternare and the indigenous communities that work with us eagerly welcomed them. Alternare’s work focuses on reducing the use of water and wood resources. To this end, during the last trimester of the year, six women and 11 men from local communities within the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve, participated in two workshops and built six fuel-efficient stoves for three families, two for the schools and one for a community. Additionally, 38 men participated in three workshops and built three school and four community cisterns that will be used by the communities at large. “The cisterns will help us capture rain-water which we will use for the entire community”, said a member of Donaciano Ojeda indigenous community enthusiastically while getting water from the cistern.

In preparation for next year’s reforestation we already have 4,300 new seedlings and 22,000 seedlings-in-growth in our 23 collective tree nurseries waiting for next summer!

MBF is delighted to make all this possible and contribute to forest conservation while improving the standard of living of the local communities. This will in turn benefit the overwintering habitat of the monarch butterflies. We couldn’t do it without your generous contributions!! Thank you!

    Judy In the lower left hand corner of the photo of the woman with her new fuel-efficient stove, there's a hat sitting on another stove, Is that a gas powered stove? Is this a community kitchen or does she have 2 stoves?
