Fluttering, flitting, flying, emerging, growing….our lush tropical conservatory is alive with 1,600 butterflies from rainforests around the world. Witness butterflies emerging from their chrysalides and watch us release them into their rainforest habitat during our Butterfly Encounters.
Explore this 7,200 square-foot tropical rainforest that not only serves as a home to countless butterflies, but also displays over 200 plant species from around the world.
Wings of the Tropics is a habitat for tropical butterflies, in addition to other creatures such as fish and turtles who call this place their home. The climate in our rainforest is kept consistently warm and moist, just like the native environments of our tropical butterflies.
Butterfly Pavilion purchases about 600-1000 butterfly chrysalids each week from butterfly farms located in rainforests around the globe, contributing over $80,000 annually to sustainable farming operations in endangered ecosystems!
