Insectopia Museum Jewelry and Gifts

Another use of natural resources

Our butterfly Jewelry and Gifts only display real specimens; we use butterflies raised at local farms that are collected after their lifecycle, usually by farmers with low incomes. The plants needed to raise them are native species with no other commercial value, so their cultivation contributes to the conservation and reforestation of these habitats. 

This activity, as well as providing these people with an alternative source of income that significantly improves their quality of life, makes a valuable contribution to their environmental education by teaching them to understand, identify, and preserve species of both plants and butterflies that belong to their environment.  In addition, many species of animals and plants also benefit indirectly from the protection of these butterfly habitats.
