Partnership will support reforestation in Estado de México, Mexico, the wintertime habitat for pollinating butterfly
LINCOLN, Neb., June 30, 2020 /3BL Media/ – Alongside key corporate partners International Paper and L’Oreal USA, the Arbor Day Foundation has announced a partnership with the Land Life Company to support reforestation efforts for critical Monarch butterfly habitats in Estado de México, Mexico. This partnership will support efforts to replant and restore degraded areas of the “Zona Nucleo,” the breeding ground for the Monarch, beginning June 2020.
Each year, millions of Monarch butterflies migrate to Estado de México, Mexico to spend the winter among the Oyamel trees, fir trees that protect the butterflies from seasonal rain and cold. However, areas of the “Zona Nucleo,” the breeding ground for the Monarch, require restoration due to illegal logging and wildfires. By teaming up with the Arbor Day Foundation, both International Paper and L’Oréal are supporting a new partnership between Arbor Day and the Land Life Company to make a difference in this critical ecosystem.
