When I went on the very first trip organized to see the overwintering monarch butterflies in Michaocan, Mexico, I hadn’t realized that I would become quickly engaged in the La Cruz Habitat Protection Project as I learned all that it was doing and how it was going about saving the monarch butterfly habitats. The Project doesn’t just help protect the butterflies through reforestation, it also helps local families make a difference in their lives and communities as they become involved planting millions of trees to keep up with all those being destroyed for industrial paper and lumber. The residents see how planting trees also improves their own lives and environment– growing wood for their own use, preventing soil erosion, maintaining clean water and air quality, and enhancing eco-tourism.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing for myself the involvement of the local people in planting seedlings, the rapid growth of new forests, and the safer haven for the migrating monarch butterflies.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Enable it to bring in more tourists like myself since each one is likely to be a supporter and donor.

My wife and I visited the monarch butterfly wintering areas in Michoacan a few years ago and were absolutely enthralled by the butterfly roosts. We stayed at Jose Alvarez's hacienda and toured his reforestation greenhouses. Travel to Michoacan is next to impossible nowadays because of the drug-related violence in that area, so tourism revenues are down. It is therefore especially important that LCHPP receive funding from other sources. It is a wonderful project. The monarch butterfly is one species that we must work hard to save.
