Opening Birdwing Release
November 23 from 12-1:15 pm in Wings of the Tropics
Enjoy the inaugural release of these rare and giant butterflies, a didgeridoo performance by Swallow Hill Music and a live acrylic painting of a Northern Birdwing created by Butterfly Pavilion Educator Burgundy Hanna.
Make your holiday season bright and discover some of the world’s most spectacular butterflies - Northern Birdwings! Typically only found in the rainforests of Southeast Asia and Oceania, they’re taking flight in Butterfly Pavilion’s Wings of the Tropics exhibit for a limited time.
Whether it be the nearly 9-inch wingspan of the brown and yellow females or the iridescent emerald scales and deep black borders of the males, these butterflies are a sight to behold. However, their gorgeous coloration makes them common victims of the illegal butterfly trade and they also face threats related to habitat loss and climate change.
Visit Butterfly Pavilion to see these incredible animals up close and learn more about what you can do to protect them – even from right here in Colorado.
