*10 December 2007*  Approximately 40 Monarch Butterfly experts from 
across Mexico, the United States, and Canada recently traveled to 
Morelia, Mexico to develop a North American Monarch Butterfly 
Conservation Plan. The effort, led by the Commission for Environmental 
Cooperation, included presentations and discussions of the ecological, 
economical, and sociological threats to the North American Monarch 
Butterfly population across its wintering, migration, and breeding 
ranges. The plan is expected to be made publicly available by mid-April,
