In this report Dane share's amazing story about the journey of an insect. The monarch butterfly. The annual migration of North America’s monarch butterfly is a unique and amazing phenomenon. The monarch is the only butterfly known to make a two-way migration as birds do.
How is it possible for them to migrate as far as 3000 miles across North America, and know where to go? And even more bizarre - because it is such a long trip – the individuals that start the journey die of old age along the way, and it’s their children and then their children’s children that continue the trip. 4 generations to complete the migration. And they do this season after season. How do they know how to do that? Do they have some sort of built-in programming and GPS system mapped into their genetic code? And what does the amazing Monarch journey tell us our own human journey?
Nature is so perfect. Thank you for making my next sighting of this beautiful butterfly with different eyes…. those of wonder and beauty.
