In case you missed it this morning, National Public Radio aired a three-minute segment on how drug cartel violence is negatively impacting tourism to Michoacan, Mexico, where “milliones de monarcas” overwinter each year.
You can listen to “Mexico’s Drug War Keeps Tourists from Monarchs”  on the NPR site.
Readers of the Texas Butterfly Ranch blog heard this story right here on January 21.  We’re glad to see major media pay attention to our favorite lepidoptera.
