Win a 10-day trip to visit monarch butterfly reserves in Mexico with G Adventures!


ENTER NOW! Contest closes November 30!

Every fall a “super” generation of monarch butterflies leaves Canada to renew an ancient, 4,000-kilometre migration to the Mexican oyamel fir forests. Like many Canadian “snowbirds,” monarchs spend the winter in the sun! Want to join them?

Enter the David Suzuki Foundation’s Monarchs in Mexico contest! You could win a trip for two to visit magnificent monarch butterfly reserves!

The monarch butterfly is now considered an endangered species and they need your help. Win the chance to admire their beauty in Mexico. You may be inspired to become their ambassador for life.

The 10-day trip includes visits to historic Mexico City, colonial towns and national parks, and the awe-inspiring spectacle of millions of butterflies in flight at the El Rosario and Sierra Chincua reserves, part of the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
