2016 Winter Monarch Population-MX

This info came out last week Feb 26th. This is really good news but we need to plant more habitat. 

The WWF states that the numbers in Mexico have risen to 3 1/2x the number of last year. 
We did it, we made a difference! 
The butterflies are occupying 10 acres! Last year if you remember the butterflies occupied only 2.8 acres and increase of 69% from the year before which was 1.6 acres. 
An acre is just over 40,000 square feet. 
What does this mean? Well I will ponder that and so can you, send me your thoughts. I will send another post this weekend. 
Have a great day! PLANT MILKWEED!!!
