Plant more Milkweed....Save our Monarchs

If you are thinking about raising Monarchs, this is a great film to watch before you get started. I've been raising them for years and I wish this was available then. @lovethishobby

I loved seeing this and learning of the monarchs migration and destination.

One man developed a lifelong interest in the monarch butterfly. This is an amazing story of tenacity and partnership with other like-minded people. I loved seeing this and learning of the monarchs' migration and destination.

WOW!

We very much enjoyed the 3D version at Butterfly Wonderland in Scottsdale, AZ, and are so happy to have finally purchased the digital download here on Amazon. Easy purchase of a truly remarkable film! What amazing videography! And what an absolutely AWESOME Creator to have designed and then programmed monarch butterflies with God-given instincts to fly 2,000 miles across North America, generation after generation! It was unfortunate that the film mentioned Darwin, evolution, and adaptations as if random chance plus time had anything to do with creating these amazing insects. What child would believe that a plastic replica of a monarch butterfly was not deliberately designed by someone, let alone real butterflies that live and eat and reproduce after their own kind. Apart from deleting God from the film, we loved it! My favorite part was when Dr. Urquhart found butterfly PS 397 in Mexico on January 9, 1976 - indisputable evidence that these butterflies migrate from Canda to Mexico! Imagine finding a tagged butterfly amidst tens of millions of unmarked ones - Wow! That's Providence!
