Go Behind the Scenes
What does it take to run a butterfly house? For starters; patience! Each week, we receive hundreds of butterfly chrysalides and moth cocoons and wait as they undergo their metamorphic magic. What you may not know is that the purchase of these butterflies from tropical butterfly farms adds to a sustainable rainforest economy.
We work with butterfly farmers around the world to keep the butterfly house full of tropical beauties. Over the last 30 years, butterfly farming has blossomed into a vital economic alternative to logging and other activities that destroy the rain forest. Join the fun and reserve a Behind the Scenes Butterfly Tour.
