Summer 2013 Reforestation

As a result of the workshops carried out by our local partner Alternare during March, April, May, and June, 5 communities helped reforest 35 hectares of land within the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve in July and August, 2013.  

In 5 additional workshops carried out by Alternare in June and July, 32 women and 54 men built a total of 9 cisterns and 38 fuel-efficient stoves.  The funding provided by MBF for these activities was available thanks to 20 generous donors who contributed $2,440 on June 12th’s GlobalGiving Bonus Day, which were matched with $780 from GlobalGiving.  Thank you!

Our fall newsletter is coming on September 13! Visit our website to download the full version and read all about our activities, articles on the low monarch numbers witnessed this summer, the effects of global warming on the monarchs, and much more. You can sign up to receive a reminder in your inbox when a new newsletter is available.

Conserving the monarchs’ overwintering habitat is crucial to the long-term survival of the monarch migratory phenomenon, and conservation of these forests must go hand in hand with support for the communities who are stewards of the land. Thank you for being our conservation allies, and helping us implement strategies to conserve the monarchs’ migration and improve the lives of the communities who share their habitat.
