Witness an awe-inspiring tale of extraordinary insect endurance and human perseverance! Flight of the Butterflies is an interconnected scientific adventure that spans not only thousands of miles, but generations.

It’s about the remarkable monarch butterfly migration, the most incredible migration on Earth! You’ll learn about a determined scientist who spent 40 years trying to discover exactly where the butterflies mysteriously disappeared when they flew south for winter.

Great event. If you have the chance, don’t miss it!

**Monarch Butterfly or Danaus plexippus is a milkweed butterfly in the family Nymphalidae. It is the best known of all North American butterflies. It has also been found in New Zealand, Australia (where it is called the wanderer), the Canary Islands, the Azores, and Madeira. It is found as an occasional migrant in Western Europe and a rare migrant in the United Kingdom.

Monarch Buterfly is famous for its southward migration and northward return in summer from Canada to Mexico and Baja California which spans the life of three to four generations of the butterfly. The route was determined by Canadian entomologists Fred and Norah Urquhart after a 38-year search, aided by naturalists Kenneth C. Brugger and Catalina Trail who solved the final piece of the puzzle by identifying the butterflies’ overwintering sites in Mexico. The discovery has been called “entomological discovery of the 20th century”.

“Butterfly was certainly a vehicle for me, and if it died, it still would have served its purpose, in spades. We never expected it to give me the visibility it has given me. It was just a small thing as a vehicle, and suddenly the whole world knew about it.” By Pia Zadora
