The First Commercial Butterfly Farm and Public Exhibition in the United States
AbstractButterfly World rears and displays at any time up to 60 species of butterflies, from 5 continents. The two areas of Butterfly World (farming and public exhibition) have four or five levels of containment. These are designed to prevent escape of the butterflies and their larvae, whose presence in nature might damage horticultural or agricultural plants.
