Wings of the Tropics Butterfly Conservatory

Hundreds of butterflies 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. Hundreds of exotic heliconids, morphos and owl butterflies from Central America, South America and Asia will be performing their aerial displays of wonder all around visitors to the Wings of the Tropics Exhibit. These butterflies represent dozens of species at a time, creating a living rainbow for visitors to walk through. The different species will be continually rotating 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, and colorful fish.
