Monarch Butterfly Tagging

Each year there are four to six generations of monarchs. Starting August monarchs begin their annual migration which is up to 5000 km. The monarchs fly over Canada and USA to Mexico, where they stay to hibernate. When releasing monarchs, a sticker can be carefully placed on one of their wings. If the butterfly is spotted in any three countries, they are reported and updated in a database. Can you imagine releasing a monarch butterfly right here in Canada and about 2 months later it is found in Mexico?
