Listen to one of the most unique sounds on earth as millions of monarch butterflies fly around.

This time, Torres drives us deep into the forest where we can hear millions of Monarch butterflies flying.

Monarch butterflies, one of the most remarkable species on the planet,that have a distinctive pattern on their delicate wings.

Every winter, millions of these monarchs migrate in large numbers to Mexico and California.

Some people don’t make it all the way, while others do but finally, die from freezing.

Monarchs who succeed can unwind, rejuvenate in the warm sun, and sip nectar from flowers before taking a flight back to their homes in the spring.

Torres talks about the butterflies’ characteristics as he walks far into the forest. He also describes the distinctive sound that the butterflies produce when they gather in large numbers.

For two years, Torres has lived in the Amazon Rainforest. In addition to Mongolia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Cambodia, Sweden, Brazil, the Arctic, the ocean’s bottom, and the Bahamas, he has conducted extensive research on a wide range of subjects and species.

And those are only a few of the locations he has visited for science.

In a Mexican forest, he follows a swarm of butterflies that have congregated in groups on trees.

The monarchs coated entire branches and leaves. He discusses how they coexist and how they nearly completely cover everything you can see as he pans the camera up to the trees and a few butterflies.

The monarchs are enabled to take flight collectively in a magnificent display of elegance and color when the sun emerges, warming them up.

Torres invites his audience to wait for a “waterfall” in one of his videos. You can listen to a waterfall-like sound when all the butterflies allow their wings to flutter collectively.

They are more than stunning.

But since they are endangered by pesticides, climate change, urban sprawl, and illegal cutting of the forests, monarch populations are down 26% from last year’s count.

They are significantly impacted by that because they move for the winter.

They eat milkweed, but it has become more poisonous to young caterpillars due to increased chemical spraying and other toxins.
