The?Butterfly Conservatory is a natural regeneration project dedicated to the preservation and re-growth of the rainforest with a focus on butterflies and other tropical rainforest frog and insect species.? The project has now grown to contain the largest exhibition of butterflies in Costa Rica, and is a learning center for understanding the butterfly life-cycle and incredible metamorphosis experience.
What You Can Expect
- Butterfly Exhibition
- Open from 09:00am to 1:30pm
- Transportation is not included.
On this tour, visitors will learn about the incredible butterfly life-cycle, and see how we raise these beautiful creatures in our butterfly laboratory.? We will also discuss the uniqueness of specific butterflies and plants found flying in each of our 4 ecological habitats.? And will also learn about exotic frogs, our botanical gardens and medicinal herb areas, along with our reproduction greenhouses, and then take the rainforest River Walk and around Butterfly Creek.
Butterflies are our primary focus, but all of nature is connected and interdependent; so we do research in many ecological areas. To have stable, healthy butterflies, we must also have clean water and healthy plant, insect and amphibian populations, so our research extends to these areas.? The Conservatory land is adjacent to a natural reserve and two rivers, where we conduct and monitor diversity surveys, environmental studies, and water quality programs.
The Butterfly Conservatory provides a natural laboratory where Biologists and other concerned scientists can do field research.? The more we monitor and learn about our environment under stress,?the better equipped we will be to protect it.? Our hope is that our grandchildren and yours will be able to experience the endless wonders in the Neotropics, with a natural balance in the carbon/oxygen ratio.
