On Earth Day 2014 (April 22), for the fourth consecutive year, we will be releasing Amazonian manatees in Peru. After the release, we will provide updates including photos and videos here on the website.
At the DWA, we will be emphasizing how everyone can help on a local level with the conservation of pollinators like the regal Monarch butterfly by providing information on the importance of the Monarch butterfly and other pollinators, and encouraging our guests to create “Monarch friendly” gardens in their homes, schools and businesses. Perhaps this year, as we drive along our colorful highways, and admire the Texas wildflowers, our State’s motto should read: Don’t Mess with Texas Monarchs! After all, the Monarch butterfly is the official State insect.
