Summer 2013 Reforestation: 34,000+ Trees Planted!

The Monarch Butterfly Fund‟s (MBF) ongoing collaboration with Alternare and CIGA (UNAM's Center for Research in Environmental Geography) continues to strengthen our relationships with local communities and consolidate the success of our yearly reforestation activities.

September 01, 2013

Supervised by Dr. Isabel Ramírez, and with the help of field assistant Rufina Rosas, during July and August, Dr. Pablo Jaramillo, coordinated the planting of 37,730 pines, 1,000 oyamels, and 1,280 oaks on 35 hectares. The trees were planted in 9 different areas within the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve (MBBR). Five local communities participated in the tree planting.
