How monarch butterflies migrate 3,000 miles

1 post in this topic

Each fall, millions of monarch butterflies leave their summer breeding grounds in the northeastern U.S. and Canada and travel upwards of 3,000 miles to reach overwintering grounds in southwestern Mexico.

But unlike birds or wildebeest that also embark on epic migrations, these individual butterflies will never return.

Why won't they make it all the way back? How do they know where to go in the first place?
