Help us protect habitats in the tropics and around the world with the Adopt-A-Butterfly program. Choose from four adoption levels to meet your needs. In return, we provide you a certificate of adoption, an informational brochure, a butterfly photo, and even a special gift ranging from a cute plush butterfly to a hand-crafted kite. Half of the profits go directly to one of our supplying butterfly farms in the tropics and the other half supports other Butterfly Pavilion's conservation efforts. Give the gift that shows how much you care, both for your loved ones and our tropical butterflies.
Adopting a butterfly is a unique and fun gift that shows you care about the environment. Habitat destruction is one of the greatest challenges facing our planet in the 21st century. By adopting a butterfly, your donation will help conservation efforts both locally and globally. Plus, it is a unique and fun gift that shows you care about the environment!
Half of the program’s profits support rainforest conservation by a selected butterfly farm partner (For 2011, our selected partner is Spirogyra in Costa Rica). The other half of the profits goes to a fund for one of the Butterfly Pavilion’s local conservation projects, such as local short grass prairie restoration, native butterfly preservation, or upgrades to more sustainable operations. A portion of each Adopt-A-Butterfly package is a tax-deductible donation.
You can purchase adoption packages in our gift shop. You may also order an adoption package over the phone (we will ship packages to you if you live out of town/state). In the future, adoption packages will be available for purchase online.
There are four adoption levels: Friend, Steward, Advocate, and Guardian. A portion of each package is a tax-deductible donation to habitat conservation efforts. A number of gift items are also included as part of each package (see chart below).
|Name of Package||Items Included|| Price
|Friend||Butterfly Photo, Adoption Certificate, Informational Brochure (about your butterfly & butterfly farming)||$12|
|Steward||All items in Friend package, plus Picture frame, Plush Morpho butterfly||$35|
|Advocate||All Items in Steward package, plus Butterfly Field Guide, Raise a butterfly kit||$70|
|Guardian||All items in Advocate package, plus Fair trade butterfly-themed gift (currently a hand-painted mobile), Letter from Butterfly Pavilion’s CEO||$115|
At this time, we’re offering adoptions of our gorgeous Blue Morpho butterfly, one of the favorite species spotted by our visitors. We plan to add new species to the program over time. Please check back with us for more details!
Our tropical butterflies must stay here at the Butterfly Pavilion, but we encourage adoptive families to visit often! Each butterfly may also have more than one adoptive parent, but the profits from all adoptions go to support conservation in rainforest habitats.
If you are ordering over the phone and we will be mailing the package to you, please allow at least 5 business days for shipping and delivery. Long distance orders should allow at least 2 weeks for shipping and delivery. If you purchase your adoption package in our gift shop, you can take it home right away!
Adoption packages are suitable for all ages! Adoption packages make a wonderful gift for children of any age, but adults will enjoy many of the items in the package as well.
You may always choose to donate more than the cost of the package. Any additional donation is tax-deductible and goes directly toward supporting conservation efforts at the Butterfly Pavilion and at our partner butterfly farm. If you are interested in making a donation to the program, we suggest purchasing the Friend package (so you receive some information about the program, but no additional gift items) and donating more than the cost of that package.
