Patagonia Santa Cruz is very excited to host Fraser Jones to show his film Where the Butterflies Go, a film about how to save the endangered monarch butterfly. As we all know the Monarch Butterfly Migration to our little coastal town is a special time of year and has been slowly dwindling. Their numbers are now down 99.9% since the 1980s. That is why Patagonia Santa Cruz have asked Groundswell Coastal Ecology, The Natural History Museum and Natural Bridges to join the film maker in a discussion surrounding conservation along with an open Q & A.
