[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
The monarch is widely distributed across North America, from Central America northwards to southern Canada, and from the Atlantic to the Pacific coasts. Within Canada, the monarch has been recorded in all 10 provinces and in the Northwest Territories.
The entire eastern population migrates to about 12 overwintering sites in central Mexico, where the butterflies congregate in vast numbers. These sites, which are specialized high-altitude ecosystems, are all located within a small area of approximately 800 square kilometres and occur only in oyamel fir forests.
