Monarch population rebounds in Mexico

 

Posted by in Wildlife on Monday, February 29, 2016

North America’s monarch butterfly population has more than tripled in Mexico this winter, despite reaching dangerously low numbers in the past.

 

This season, the monarchs covered the area so densely they had to be counted by the area they covered instead of individually. An estimated 150 million insects made the trip this year, compared to only 35 million in 2013.
