At a time when conflicting budgets and environmental philosophies have split North American countries, Reuters is reporting that a glimmer of orange may well continue to blossom across Canada, the United States and Mexico.

Monarch butterflies migrate from Eastern Canada all the way down to fir forests in Mexico’s Sierra Madre mountains through eucalyptus groves in Southern California. Preserving these critical waystations for the beautiful butterflies demonstrates a practical commitment to the environment.
