About this Trip

Embark on a journey of discovery with your Dallas Zoo’s Wild Earth Action Team as we travel to the heart of Mexico to witness the awe-inspiring congregation of migrating monarchs. This exclusive expedition, in partnership with Holbrook Travel, promises an unforgettable experience as we delve into the wonders of the natural world while supporting local communities and taking action to protect monarchs.


Explore the enchanting monarch reserves of Michoacán by hiking or horseback riding to witness millions of these majestic butterflies gathering.

Capture the vibrant hues of the butterflies as they adorn the trees in clusters, sip from streams, feast on wildflowers, and gracefully glide through the air.

Engage in a meaningful service project with ECOLIFE, delving into their Clean Stove initiative to safeguard the local community’s well-being and the monarch butterflies.

Discover the wonders of Chapultepec Zoo, hailed as Mexico’s national zoo and one of the premier zoological parks in Latin America.
