Monarchs in Canada

Google Earth Tour

Take a look at Point Pelee National Park in Ontario, Canada.  Point Pelee National Park is a particularly important location for monarchs in the fall.  The Great Lakes are a significant barrier to the monarchs' southern migration. As they move south, they search for shorter ways across the lake and the Pelee peninsula provides an excellent start! Point Pelee's shape funnels the monarchs to the tip.
