Protecting More
Than Butterflies

These butterflies have travelled all the way from farms in Costa Rica to take their first flight on our Amazon gallery. Butterflies start their life as caterpillars and caterpillars are picky eaters. They only feed on local plant-life that hasn’t been treated with pesticides. Our support of these farms doesn’t only help the farmers but it helps to preserve the indigenous wildlife for generations to come

Preserving The Amazon

The Amazon is the most diverse ecosystem in the world and it is important to remember everything is interconnected. Explore this amazing exhibit and see if you can find all of the plants and animals that we have. Now imagine this on a much larger scale. In fact eight countries and one territory that also comprises of savannahs, snow capped peaks and much more. Imagine how much more there is out there to see and preserve.
