Monarchs

Monarchs are the Queens and Kings of the Butterfly World.  download

No matter where you go around the world, everyone knows the majestic beauty of the Monarchs.

Each year we plan to name at least one Monarch Butterfly on The Butterfly Bridge. In order to receive Monarch status, a Inspirational Butterfly’s work must not only affects his/her direct community, but must also positively affect the status of women on a global level.

In our inaugural year (2012), we crowned Malala Yousufzai of Afghanistan as our first Monarch Butterfly. Malala’s dedication to education for young girls in her country and around the world almost cost her life. The attack on her life brought international outrage, and her courage in the face of death and at the threat of more violence encouraged the world and changed a nation. Because of the young Peace Prize winner, Pakistan will never be the same.
