Hundreds of butterflies and moths representing dozens of species. That’s approximately how many are on display every day in The Wings of the Tropics Exhibit in The Clinton Family Conservatory. Exotic heliconids, morphos and owl butterflies from Central America, South America and Asia perform their aerial displays of wonder all around visitors to the Wings of the Tropics Exhibit. The variety of species creates a living rainbow for visitors to walk through, and are continually rotated for education, study and pure delight. This exhibit truly is a one-of-a-kind experience, and is further enhanced by tropical plants, amazing orchids, hummingbirds and colorful fish.
