Monarch Migration – Staggering Spectacle of Nature

How it quite started no one will ever know for sure but every year the monarch butterfly begins a migration which lasts an incredible four generations.  They may not be long lived but this must be a record among animals, surely? It means that there has never been a single monarch which has completed the round trip itself but the survival species is paramount.  On their amazing journey, however, the monarchs give us one of nature’s most spectacular sights.  The Ark in Space has the full story plus some amazing photographs.
