“The mechanisms by which fall-migrating monarchs navigate to their wintering grounds in Mexico are still not fully understood, since these monarchs fly to an exact location that they’ve never even been to before - unlike migratory birds. It was initially thought that some monarchs make the return trip from Mexico to Canada and back, but we now know that’s not the case. The ones making the return trip in the fall are the descendants – the grandchildren and great-grandchildren, if you will – of those that left the wintering grounds in the spring.”
