Review for Monarch Butterfly Fund, Madison, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Monarch Butterfly Fund continues to provide critical support for the monarchs and their forests in Mexico, but also support for the people who live here. Our 2018 reforestation project in partnership with Alternare was a success. In 2016, we supported recovery of a 10-hectare illegally logged forest on Sierra Chincua - very close to where monarchs overwinter each year. We provided fencing for the area that will recover through natural regeneration to keep cattle out. The results of scientific research we support will provide knowledge for those planning to preserve and protect the monarch forests. Workshops will help local citizens improve the quality of their lives as true guardians of their own forests. Thank you.

Review for Monarch Butterfly Fund, Madison, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Monarch Butterfly Fund carries out effective work in the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve because of partnerships developed with the Reserve management, local communities and NGO's. These projects benefit the monarchs but also the ejidatarios who make the Reserve their home. Past projects include reforestation, workshops on the construction of water cisterns and high efficiency wood stoves. As active participants in the reforestation and rehabilitation of 10 ha of Monarch Reserve forest that were egregiously illegally logged on Sierra Chincua last summer, MBF was involved in the planning, Board members engaged in tree planting, and MBF made key recommendations which included allowing parts of the area with healthy oyamel fir seedlings to regenerate naturally. MBF paid for fencing to keep wandering cattle out of the natural regeneration areas. This important work must continue! Your generous donation will make this happen. Read about our work at http://monarchbutterflyfund.org . Thank you.
