The Butterfly Conservatory is a Nature Regeneration Project dedicated to the preservation, growth and study of the rainforest, with focus on butterflies and other tropical rainforest species of the Arenal region of Costa Rica. Our Metamorphosis Tour offers a practical educational adventure about nature, with diversified exhibits of how butterflies, frogs, insects and plants reproduce in this natural environment.
The project contains the largest exhibition of butterflies in Costa Rica, and is a learning center for understanding the butterfly life-cycle and incredible metamorphosis experience. Nature enthusiasts of all ages enjoy our interactive educational demonstration of how butterflies and nature are being regenerated.
The Butterfly Conservatory is maintained by tourist entrances and donation of energy from visitors. It serves as a scientific and educational center for students and individual volunteers under the supervision of biologists from the University of Costa Rica and other national and international Universities.
