Image from Wikipedia: Monarch Butterfly

The great Fall migration of the Monarch Butterfly has begun. You may soon see hundreds of butterflies fluttering overhead has they instinctively navigate their way to the very same spot in Mexico where their parents left from last spring… they’ve never been there before, but they somehow know exactly where to go… one of twelve isolated mountain tops in central Mexico.

Join the citizen science program with Journey North and help track the observations of the flight of the butterfly. Starting August 28 through the arrival of the Monarchs in Mexico by the end of October, the program will post weekly news updates of the migration progress. This will certainly be an interesting and exciting process to follow, so DPRI AmSci Journal will also be keeping an eye on the flight in our Today’s Science News section!
