Silvano Aureoles, Governor of Michoacán, Hilda Dominguez, Municipal President of Angangueo, and Carmelo Martínez, Ejido Leader, unveiled a plaque that remembers Lincoln for “his passion for monarchs, nature, science and conservation.” Governor Silvano commemorated the fact that it was in this very sanctuary where Lincoln first saw a butterfly colony and called it “Site Alpha”. MBF Board member, Isabel Ramírez, read a beautiful thank you message from Lincoln’s wife, Linda Fink, and gave a brief overview of Lincoln’s work including the important role he played in the conservation of this site.
