Gratitude and Monarchs are in the Air!

The end of the year is almost here and as everyone prepares for the holidays the monarchs arrived in Mexico, to the delight of the local communities. Right on the Day of the Dead, monarchs started flying about and settling in the oyamel trees!

September, October, and November were busy months for several communities in the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve. One hundred and fifty eight people participated in seven workshops which resulted in the construction of 10 fuel-efficient stoves, one cistern and the establishment of ten tree nurseries.

Doña Graciela, from the Senguio ejido proudly showed us her stove and told us, “I am so grateful for my new stove. Knowing that I’m not harming the forest so much, makes my “tortillas” taste much better!”

MBF is also thankful and our success - manifested in the joy our recipients feel - would not be possible without you! ¡Gracias!

Thank you and warmest wishes for this holiday season!
