**On the* UNITED NATIONS INTERNATIONAL YEAR OF FOREST 2011 **Project Oyamel fir *is dedicated to* *Oyamel Fir trees which are the winter shelter for several hundred million Monarch Butterflies migrating from north and south. Relentless logging has compromised the forest canopy that once protected monarchs. A growing human population around these butterfly havens and increased demand for wood gravely threaten the survival of the over-wintering butterflies, as well as the forest environment in general.
