The Butterfly Gardens
Perhaps unsurprisingly, butterflies play a starring role at The Butterfly Gardens. Thousands of them flutter around freely, up to 75 species from across the globe. But the facility isn't just a home for butterflies: it's a thriving ecosystem. Exotic birds fill the space with their native songs, and other critters—including button quail, tree frogs, and geckos—also roam about the tropical plants and orchids.
In order to accommodate such a diverse spectrum of life, the thermostat at Butterfly Gardens remains set at 25 degrees Celsius with 80 percent humidity. The facility has essentially re-created a rainforest, and precise management enables it to thrive without packing the soil with such foreign sources as herbicides, pesticides, or protein powder. While strolling along its paths, visitors learn all about how the ecosystem operates, and various exhibits and displays let them inspect the Gardens' creatures and plant life more closely.
