Web Site of the Week: The Journey of the Butterflies

 Every year, monarch butterflies migrate     2000 miles to a sanctuary in the highlands   of Mexico. How do they do it? It’s a terrific story, and it is the focus of this recent documentary created by the team at NOVA. To get the butterflies perspective, the filmmakers used a helicopter, ultralight, and hot-air balloon to capture some aerial views along the route. On this website, visitors can view the documentary in its entirety. The site includes a section where filmmaker Nick de Pencier describes all of the work involved with following these creatures as they travelled from Canada to Mexico. The site is rounded out by a selection of links on the left-hand side of the page and suggestions for those who’d like to read more about this migration. [KMG]
