Review for Forests for Monarchs, La Cruz Habitat Protection Project, Austin , TX, USA
I've been a contributor for many years after visiting the Monarch Biosphere in Michoacán in 2007. This is a terrific organization. Virtually every penny goes to planting trees and monitoring the forest. About 65-70% of trees planted are Oyamel Fir that the butterflies need for their winter roost. The rest are fast-growing trees that are used by the local population for firewood, erosion control, etc. Every dollar contributed plants two trees. In 2013, Forestsformonarchs.org (La Cruz Habitat Protection Project) planted one million trees.
The Monarch Butterfly population has declined by about 90% since 2000 and this iconic species is in danger of extinction, so support for this organization and planting milkweed and forbes in the States is critical for Monarch survival.
