MBF Ready for 2017!

Monarchs are starting to head back north and our partner Alternare and the local communities are preparing for the year ahead. This winter the monarch population diminished by 27% compared to last year which is prompting us to redouble our efforts to help them!

The last month of 2106 and January and February, 2017 were mostly dedicated to planning our projects for 2017. However, we did carry out four workshops with the participation of 28 women and 15 men from the Manzanillos, Nicolas Romero, and Francisco Serrato indigenous communities. There were two workshops to build cisterns, and two on tree planting techniques. They resulted in the construction of two cisterns and three fuel-efficient stoves and one school tree nursery. Trees in nurseries need to be nurtured and 20,906 trees were looked after on 23 school and community nurseries.

Community cisterns are helping us manage the water supply by capturing rain water and distribute it among the individuals that live in the community. Communities are becoming self-sufficient, empowered and have embraced conservation and land stewardship, not only for the monarchs but for their own well-being. As one workshop participant told us: “we have sufficient water but it is distributed poorly. And to solve this problem we have considered the construction of a cistern to capture water. That would bring water to the community in the months when it is scarce.”

As one of our partners in conservation, you are joining thousands of people across North America actively doing something to support the monarchs and we are very grateful.

THANK YOU for being a part of these inspiring initiatives!
