|Seneca Park Zoo in Rochester, New York has developed a Monarch butterfly breeding and release program. The goal is to encourage preservation and expansion of butterfly habitat in the Rochester area. Monarch caterpillars have been raised to the adult butterfly stages, which have in turn produced hundreds of eggs! |
The butterflies are released at various parks and nursing homes. They are tagged to follow their flight. Over 2,000 were found in Mexico, the destination of their annual migration.
