On the Trail of the Monarch Butterfly
In August 2005, Mexican filmmaker and pilot Francisco Gutiérrez took off in his ultralight aircraft from Montreal to follow the monarch butterflies on their 6,000 km migration from Canada to the mountains of central Mexico, in a bid to raise awareness of the importance of preserving the butterflies’ habitat. In collaboration with the Embassy of Mexico, the Canada Aviation and Space Museum produced an exhibition from the material recorded by Mr. Gutiérrez on his journey aboard the Papalotzin – the nickname of his ultralight aircraft, which means small butterfly in the Aztec language. On the Trail of the Monarch Butterfly exhibit features breathtaking photographs taken by Mr. Gutiérrez.This exhibit was brought to you by the Verona Public Library Endowment.
