Description

Royalties from this book will be donated to the World Wildlife Fund It is the remarkable autumn migration over thousands of miles to just several select Mexican overwintering sites where they rest for the return trip home, that make these beautiful bugs wonders of nature. Monarchs are the only butterflies to migrate such distances; the question of how they find their way remains one of the great unsolved mysteries of animal biology. Phil Schappert, a biologist who studies butterflies, explores the beauty and the mysteries of the monarch in this beautiful book providing a season-byseason overview including 30 detailed pictures that capture the butterfly's world in all its beauty. Schappert also documents the trials of the monarch's life, including challenges faced from human destruction of their overwintering spots, and natural disasters such as the recent cold snap in Mexico that threaten to decimate the world's Monarch populations.
