Glad to hear you like Frankie, I think he's pretty cute too!
You have monarch butterflies that are overwintering
just down the coast from you. Monarchs from North
America seem to head in two directions. Most of the
ones to the east of the Rockies travel down into
Mexico. Those to the west, head to California.
The town of Pacific Grove, near Monterey, is
probably the monarch capitol of California.
You could send your own Frankie down from where
you live to a California school that is near the
monarchs. What other animals migrate through

enjoy looking at -

us we went to see two sanctuaries there.
The pictures should give you an idea of what
the winters are like for the monarchs there.
El Rosario Reserve
Cerro Chincua Reserve
Also the town of Pacific Grove has a couple of websites:
