Hi Brittany,
The Monarch butterfly is arguably the world’s best known butterfly, and it has been popularized because of its yearly migrations to warmer regions in Mexico, Florida and California when winter approaches.  The Monarch Butterflies in Big Sur website has a nice migration map, and people wanting to track the migrations can visit the Monarch Journey South News website.
