The Butterfly Palace flies well over 1,000 live tropical butterflies in a 7,000-square foot garden filled with tropical plants and beautiful orchids. Over 60 different species of butterflies from countries all over the world such as Costa Rica, Ecuador and Malaysia are free flying daily for viewing by our guests. This living showcase of beauty is continually changing. With the help of our staff entomologist, we import around 600-800 butterflies in the Chrysalis stage per week. Those butterflies go into the “nursery” and hang there until they emerge. Once they have emerged they are released into the aviary to live out their lives. As visitors, will learn upon their visit to The Butterfly Palace, the average lifespan of the butterfly is around 2-3 weeks. There are two scheduled releases per day where guests can assist in releasing a butterfly for its first flight, at 10:30AM and 1:30PM you won’t want to miss this incredible experience!

Due to the short life span we spend approximately $75,000 per year purchasing butterflies from these butterfly farms to keep The Butterfly Palace alive and ever-changing. We have a goal each year to raise that $10,000 so that we can help the farmers buy more land to save the rainforest. These farms are a vital part of the rainforest. Very often in these small countries this IS their only way of life. And our purchase provides a much-needed income for many natives of the rainforest. Many of our suppliers use the profits from purchases of butterfly pupae and use it to buy rainforest land for preserves. It is purchased in a land trust so that it can never be re-sold. It creates a sustainable rainforest economy by providing income not only to employees of the farm, but each farm has partnerships set up with sometimes 80-100 small families who practice butterfly farming at home on a smaller scale, and provide pupae to the farm. In the wild there is a 7% survival rate for a butterfly but in a butterfly farm they achieve a 70-90% survival rate. Farmers release a certain percentage of butterflies back to the wild to support species preservation.

Walking among live, tropical butterflies is of course only one step in the visitor’s experience at The Butterfly Palace and Rainforest Adventure. It is our wish that the rainforest adventure is felt throughout the entire visit. After guests have experienced the films offered about the butterflies and then spent time exploring the tropical paradise of the butterflies, the journey then continues for kids of all ages by finding their way through the Emerald Mirror Maze and navigating The Banyan Tree Adventure, which simulates the roots of the Banyan tree of the rainforest. One of the most exciting places to visit is the Living Rainforest Science Center. Here guests will find interactive activities such as peek inside of a frog in the virtual frog dissection kiosk and look up close at reptile sheds and butterfly wings with the Interactive microscope display. Genuine rainforest inhabitants such as: vividly-colored poison dart frogs, salamanders, geckos and many other reptile and amphibians from the rainforest are all on display for a close-up view. Our knowledgeable staff is there to answer questions and give you information during your time here.
