Mono Lake (/ˈmoʊnoʊ/ moh-noh) is a large, shallow saline soda lake in Mono County, California, formed at least 760,000 years ago as a terminal lake in an endorheic basin. The lack of an outlet causes high levels of salts to accumulate in the lake. These salts also make the lake water alkaline. This desert lake has an unusually productive ecosystem based on brine shrimp that thrive in its waters, and provides critical nesting habitat for two million annual migratory birds that feed on the shrimp and blackflies (that also feed on the shrimp).
The human history of Mono Lake is associated with its productive ecosystem. The native Kutzadika'a people derived nutrition from the pupae of the alkali flies that live in the lake. When the city of Los Angelesdiverted water from the lake, it lowered the lake level, which imperiled the migratory birds. The Mono Lake Committee formed in response and won a legal battle that forced Los Angeles to partially restore the lake level.

I thought I would watch a little tv while I work on a few pupae bins. I guess poppy the cat thinks otherwise. #poppy #poppythecat #pupae

The falling leaves 🍁 drift by the window 🎵... The autumn leaves of red and gold ...🎶 Do you know that those leaves (and branches) on the ground benefit the wildlife and your garden? • Many wildlife species live there • Many butterfly and moth species overwinter as pupae in the leaf litter • They fertilize your soil. To read full article on this, go to National Wildlife Federation on its blog titled “What To Do with Fallen Leaves” @nationalwildlife
Nature teaches us that’s it’s ok to be messy sometimes, purposeful mess!

Did you know... we receive hundreds of butterfly chrysalides and moth cocoons each week? Did you know that you can actually assist our Biologist as she processes the chrysalides and cocoons?! With our new Behind-The-Scenes Butterfly Experiences, you can get a glimpse of how our Biologist processes these shipments every week!

#DYK that mosquito larvae and pupae can form in as little as a teaspoon of water?😨 All the more reason for you to drain any standing water in your yard!

Why didn’t I get an invite to the party? #hibernation #ladybirds #butterflypupae #pupae #ladybugs

Lookit that little guy in the middle—that’s my very last caterpillar of the season. He’s teeny—fully half the size of the others. #godspeed #littlecreatures #monarchbutterflies #monarchbutterfly #monarchmigration #pupae #metamorphosis #chrysalis #smallmiracles
