A monarch butterfly outside of Cambridge, Ontario, getting ready for its long journey to its wintering grounds in Mexico. Southern Ontario is almost the northern limit of monarchs. Our family went to the Butterfly Conservatory for the day to help tag monarchs before their long migration so scientists can track how many make the journey. The monarch population is in decline.
