Monarchs: Midwest USA to México,….at the Toledo Zoo

TOLEDO, August 16, 2018: Hans Christian Andersen wrote: “Living is not enough, said the butterfly, one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.” The Toledo Zoo couldn’t agree more and invites the public to be a part of its butterfly conservation efforts through the annual sponsorship opportunity, Monarchs: Midwest to México!

Each year, tens of thousands of monarch butterflies make their annual voyage from northern breeding grounds to over-wintering sites, high in the forests of México. As part of its ongoing butterfly conservation work, the Zoo has bred more than 500 monarch butterflies for release on this yearly migration. The monarchs are beginning to emerge and will soon be ready for release.

Before being released, each of the Zoo's monarchs receive a unique and painless tag to identify each animal, allowing the Zoo to receive data if the migratory animals are spotted on their 3,000+ mile journey toward Michoacán, México. To date, nearly 40 tags have been recovered and documented from our releases. Who knows, this year it could be your butterfly!

Be a part of the monarchs’ journey by sponsoring the winged ambassadors, starting at just $10. Visit toledozoo.org/monarch to sponsor a butterfly! This incredible opportunity will flutter away on September 30,2018, so fund a flying friend today.

Join the Zoo as they wish the butterflies well on their journey from the Midwest to México with public releases each Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. in Nature’s Neighborhood now through September. *Zoo admission rates apply. Releases may be affected by weather and butterfly population numbers. 

Take part in the Zoo's conservation initiatives and help create a better natural world for all creatures, from butterflies to brown bears.
