Watch the Monarch's Incredible Journey


The Monarch Watch blog has this to say about NOVA’s program, "The Incredible Journey of the Butterflies" tonight

From time to time the monarch migration and associated conservation issues are covered in the national media, via articles in newspapers, magazines, and short clips on TV news programs. Overall, the coverage of the monarch story has been spotty bits and pieces, and Americans have not been exposed to an in-depth treatment of the amazing monarch migration, nor the people and cultures that encounter monarchs on their yearly north and south passage across the continent. This is about to change. NOVA’s The Incredible Journey of the Butterflies will be aired on PBS at 8PM (check local listings) Tuesday, 27 January 2009.

KU's Monarch Watch main man, Chip Taylor, goes on to say,

“This program is an edited version of “Four Wings and a Prayer” - a Canadian/French film production based loosely on the fine book of the same name by Sue Halpern..

A high definition television has not found its way into our house yet. This program would be beautiful in this format.

Linda, I'm thankful the Jayhawks are playing Wednesday night. Otherwise, I would feel conflicted about which game to watch tonight. Thanks for the info.

I am glad that I caught this, Linda. I probably would have missed it if you wouldn't have posted your blog. It is always with interest that I watch the beauty of our winged friends...whoever they might be.Have you ever tagged a monarch?
