Monarch Butterfly Update

The White House recently released a joint statement from the presidents of the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, following their meeting in Toluca to discuss “building the most competitive and dynamic region in the world.” Thanks to the petition campaign organized by Mexican poet/activist Homero Aridjis, and signed by dozens of scientists and writers from the three nations, the leaders’ official statement included these words:

Our governments will establish a working group to ensure the conservation of the Monarch butterfly, a species that symbolizes our association.

Definitely a step in the right direction. – Dick Russell
