Review for Monarch Butterfly Fund, Madison, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a donor to Monarch Butterfly Fund, I know that it is most important to conserve and rehabilitate the forests in the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve, but to also to improve the quality of life for the ejidatarios living in the Reserve. Many of these people live in extreme poverty. Improving their quality of life may allow these people to be better able to be the true guardians of their own forests. I like how MBF partners with many other organizations doing effective work in the Reserve. The research MBF supports will guide efforts to conserve and protect the monarchs and their forests. I will continue to donate to Monarch Butterfly Fund in 2019. I am confident that their strategies are the best ones.

Rating: 5 stars  

From what I am reading at the Monarch Butterfly Fund website (monarchconservation.org) this has been another productive year for this effective 501 (c) (3) non profit, engaging in projects that benefit both the monarchs and the ejidatarios who live in the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve. Contrary to comments made in an earlier review by John Marks, MBF was not created in 2014 but in 2009 through a merger of two non-profits, and they have expanded on the projects they support in the Reserve. I am sending them a donation today to ensure that the work they do will continue.

Inspired by reading the latest MBF newsletter posted at www.monarchbutterflyfund.org
I will donate even more money to MBF this year! Almost 28,000 trees planted in partnership with Alternare and 700 men and women from 7 indigenous communities; workshops sponsored for the building of energy-efficient wood stoves, water cisterns and dry latrines; important scientific research sponsored; 21 tree nurseries established. Both the monarchs and people living in the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve benefit from this work. Collaboration with U.S. monarch conservation efforts as a member of Monarch Joint Venture. Founded in February 2009, this non-profit has an admirable track record of landmark accomplishments. The results are in! DONATE TODAY!

What an incredible year for Monarch Butterfly Fund in carrying out it's Mission to foster the conservation of North American Monarch butterflies and their migration through habitat restoration, research, monitoring, education and support for sustainable community development in and near the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve. Having developed the trust and cooperation of local communities through past projects, 32,500 tree seedlings were planted on 32 hectares of land, providing communities with the incentives to be the protectors and guardians of their own forests; skills and knowledge leading to sustainable forestry; future resources with which to heat their homes, cook their food or sell wood to make money with which to support their families; reduce the demand for wood and timber at higher elevations on the mountains where the monarchs spent the winter months. Seeing members of communities rally together - husbands, wives, children and grandparents - digging holes and planting trees is so exciting! MBF is really making a difference!
