Endangered Monarch Butterflies Repopulate Mexico for First Time Since 2020

May 31, 2022

Wildlife researchers in Mexico say for the first time since 2020, the critically endangered monarch butterflies increased in population. For decades the fluttering orange and black migrants have been in decline, but a new study shows there were 35% more insects last winter in the forests they migrate to. Biologists say the butterflies were found in 7.02 acres last December, up from 5.19 in 2020. However, in the 1990’s they took up 45 acres of Mexican forest. Inside Edition Digital has more.
