Not sure how many butterflies Audrey released last night, but I think around 30. We decided to have some fun and see how many she could hold and release at one time. The Monarchs were ready to leave, but she could hold around 10 without help.
More butterflies soon! Listening to her, this is the best of the last few years.
It has been aÂ difficultÂ year finding Monarchs, atÂ any stage, in the wild.
AudreyÂ discoveredÂ if she bleaches the eggs of sick butterflies, the offspring have a good chance of being healthy. Â She set up a nursery and managed to collect a lot of eggs this year. I do not know exact numbers, but she has released over 150 Monarchs this summer!
