Love and Disgust: One Butterfly Two Worlds


This is a conversation between Columba Gonzalez Duarte PhD and Viola Schreer (hosted by Mount Saint Vincent University) about two worlds: the North, where the monarch butterfly lives during the summer months and the South, where it hibernates. The availability of food is what triggers the migration of this species. The difference in its lifecycle along its migration creates a different relationship between the insect and the inhabitants of the land in travels through.
