"Monarch Butterfly Migration May Rebound This Winter, Experts Say"

"MEXICO CITY — Deforestation is down in the Mexican forest that is the winter home of Monarch butterflies, and scientists also hope to see a rebound in the annual migration after it fell to historic lows last year, an expert said Thursday.

Omar Vidal of the World Wildlife Fund said two to three times more Monarchs may arrive this year, compared to last year.

'The data from the United States indicates a light recovery,' Vidal said. 'They are calculating that we can expect at least double the number and perhaps triple.'"
