Mexico documents big rebound in monarch butterflies
from The Associated Press via KTAR-TV
Monarch butterflies have made a big comeback in their wintering grounds in Mexico, after suffering serious declines, experts said. The area covered by the orange-and-black insects in the mountains west of Mexico City this season was more than three and a half times greater than last winter. The butterflies clump so densely in the pine and fir forests they are counted by the area they cover rather than by individual insects.
