Every year, 100 million monarch butterflies set off on an incredible 2,000 mile journey across North America to a tiny area high in the mountains of Mexico. Yet scientists are still puzzling over how the butterflies achieve this tremendous feat of endurance – and how, year after year, the monarchs navigate with such hair’s breadth precision. NOVA flies along with the monarchs, visiting the spectacular locations they call home, and meeting the dangers they encounter along the way. The Incredible Journey of the Butterflies reveals the monarchs as a scientific marvel locked in an inspiring struggle for survival. Join us at the Visitor Center to watch this beautiful documentary.
