A group of farmers and environmental defenders made a trip to the beautiful town of Valle de Bravo in the State of Mexico in early January. Its main objective: to visit the protected natural reserve of Piedra Herrada, where thousands of monarch butterflies arrive to spend the winter in its majestic oyamel forests.

Local people say that the butterflies are their ancestors who come to visit them and begin to arrive around the Day of the Dead celebrations.
