Sponsor a butterfly and support the Toledo Zoo’s conservation efforts

The Toledo Zoo is once again offering a unique chance to support conservation efforts by sponsoring a Monarch butterfly.

 

The Zoo reared over 900 of the insects last year as part of a program to bolster the numbers of pollinators prior to their annual migration to forests in Mexico. The Zoo has supported the release of around 4,000 butterflies since beginning the program, a press release stated.

 

As in years past, Zoo patrons who wish to back this important work can sponsor a butterfly on its journey. Sponsorships are available on the Zoo website for $10. A patron can choose to sponsor multiple butterflies if they wish.

 

Each butterfly is tagged prior to release. If the specimen a sponsor supports is seen on its trip to Mexico, the Zoo said it will contact and inform the sponsor.

 

The deadline for sponsorship is Wednesday, September 30.
