Still image from Monarch: A Butterfly Beyond Borders (Spanish)

Millions of monarch butterflies from the United States and Canada fly five thousand kilometers each year to hibernate in the forests of California and Mexico. This documentary explains their diet, as well as their protection against their predators, their migratory routes, the dangers they face due to deforestation, the effects of the ecotourism, and much more. Close-ups accompany descriptions of the metamorphosis and the life cycles of these curious insects. NOTE: Brief copulation scene.
