Sep 28, 2018

Join Tina Evangelista-Eppenstein and her guest, Ron Richael, Author of “Attracting Butterflies- A Handbook for Butterfly Gardening on this episode of Animal Welfare Issues,, as the two of them share their love of raising monarch butterflies. Tune in to see a live monarch caterpillar, butterflies and a chrysalis from which a monarch caterpillar transforms into a majestic butterfly! Ron shares his wealth of knowledge to attract butterflies to your garden. The importance of private citizens raising monarchs to help with their migration to Mexico each winter is also discussed. Monarchs are still eclosing from their chryslades and making their way to Mexico. If you’ve never seen a monarch butterfly up close, watch this video! You will also see a monarch emerging from its chrysalis!

Tina also talks about World Animal Day celebrated on October 4th. Tina is the U.S. Ambassador for World Animal Day.
