Amazing & Beautiful Butterflies is an environmentally conscious company. Most of our Butterflies and Insects are raised in small local butterfly farms all over the world. This helps to preserve valuable rainforest habitat, because raising insects to sell provides income to these areas and offers an alternative to slash and burn farming or logging, thus preserving tropical forests. Another side effect of Butterfly farming has been “Eco-tourism”, which further preserves valuable habitat. Habitat destruction is the main threat to our natural environment, and Butterfly farming helps preserve the entire ecosystem. Furthermore, we believe catching and using butterflies from the wild is not only uneconomical, but the specimens are invariably damaged and of no use for this type of art.
Our displays convey and show off the beauty and diversity of insects and hopefully encourage people, particularly the younger generation, to realize how important it is to preserve natural areas and the beautiful creatures within them. No butterflies or insects used in these displays are endangered species. All are legally imported into the US as regulated by the US Fish and Wildlife Department. This makes our butterfly displays the perfect environmentally friendly gift for teachers, scientists, such as entomologist, private collectors, and anyone who appreciates the amazing beauty of butterflies.
