Finally some very good news;Butterfly

The 2016 year represents the first time in over a decade that Monarch Butterfly numbers have increased by 3.5 fold. The estimated number of a 150 million is still a third of traditional numbers from the turn of this century. So there remains lots of work still undone.  Perhaps the public awareness is that Monarchs need Milkweed in their larval stage is a terrific start.  Milkweed with their inherent toxins, make the Monarch poisonous to most predators. This is which also known as “the supermen” of the insect world.

However unbeknownst to many, Mature Monarchs Crave Wild Flowers! So please continue to spread that milkweed this fall and do remember to sow some wild flower seeds this spring, especially around the edges of your gardens, city parks and throughout rural watercourses.

Congrats to all, who have assisted with this notable etymological bounce. With additional assistance, we can help this beautiful marvel so that it can rebound in numbers close to that of the Mid last century and marvel our children’s grandchildren.

May everyone have a fantastic fall, especially our intrepid travellers! The North East looks like they may enjoy a spectacular foliage show this September & October. Do smile when you see our Floating Tangerine & Black wanders. Wish them the best of luck on their harrowing journey to the forests of Michoacán.
