Locals find monarch colony in Mexico after yearslong search

AMANALCO DE BECERRA, Mexico --- For years, park rangers and conservationists working around Mexico's Nevado de Toluca volcano chased rumors of a monarch butterfly colony that wintered high in a forest of oyamel firs in some corner of the 132,000-acre (53,419-hectare) national reserve. Local woodsmen would report seeing some of the butterflies fluttering about and scouting teams would scramble to trek into the forest.

"It was like an urban legend," said Gloria Tavera Alonso, a regional...Keep on reading: Locals find monarch colony in Mexico after yearslong search.....»»
