Reading Time: < 1 minute

Takeaways:

  • A team of scientists in Mexico are developing a successful experiment that will allow for recovery and maintenance of endemic trees which provides habitats for monarch butterflies every winter.
  • With a mix of natural restoration, soil conservation as well as active restoration, the team has achieved a survival rate of 83 to 84 percent.
  • The scientists are also implementing “assisted migration” of trees which means migrating them to higher altitudes where they can resist changing climate conditions and continue to provide habitats for the butterflies.
