Habitat loss affecting butterfly migration

The number of monarch butterflies migrating annually to Mexico from US is depleting due to deforestation and herbicide.

    The yearly mass migration of monarch butterflies from Mexico to North America and back again is under threat.

    Intense deforestation is destroying their habitat and food sources. 

    In an effort to protect this butterfly species, public and private programmes are looking to replant whatever trees are cut in Mexico.
