Every year, millions of monarch butterflies (Danaus Plexippus) make the journey more than 4,800 km from Canada to wintering in pine forests in Mexico. Their most abundant habitat is at Monarch Butterfly Biosphere, which is located about 96 km northwest of Mexico City.

Monarch butterflies are the most famous butterfly in North America. The distinguishing feature to identify them is in striking orange, black and white wings, with a wingspan of about 8.9 - 10.2 cm. Visitors can explore the monarch butterfly kingdom in Mexico sometime between January and February, when the butterflies gather most. Photo: Joel Sartore.

The coast of Trinidad Island is home to about 10,000 leather turtles (also called tortoises) during the spawning season. This is the largest sea turtle in the world, each adult female weighs over 900 kg, can dive as deep as 1,280 m. During the six-month breeding season, the turtles lay eggs dozens of times with about 8 eggs each. The eggs will hatch off after two months. Mother turtles and eggs are protected so visitors must contact the management in Matura and Grande Rivière to apply for a license to observe turtles lay eggs. Photo: Thomas Peschak.

One of the places to observe the spectacular migration of salmon is the Anan Wildlife Observatory, near the town of Wrangell, Alaska, USA. This is also the time when nearly 100 grizzly bears are waiting on the rocks to hunt for salmon. Visitors must contact the management in Anan for a permit from July to the end of August.

During the breeding season of the black-eyed albatross from September to November, visitors can see them parked on the cliffs of the Falkland Islands, the South Atlantic Ocean to nest. The island is home to more than 70% of the world's albatrosses. They can fly in the air for months, even years, without needing to land, thanks to a wingspan of more than 2 meters and taking advantage of the wind. Black albatrosses can live up to 70 years and always go back to where they were born for nesting. Photo: Paul Nicklen.
