The Magnificent Monarchs: Visit a butterfly sanctuary in Mexico

Come along on a visit to a butterfly sanctuary near Angangueo, Michoacan, Mexico, where millions of Monarch Butterflies overwinter in conifer groves. (You’ll arrive about 1m10s in.) It’s a seasonal pause in one of the longest-known, multi-generational insect migrations on the planet.
