|For a few dollars more, our Victoria excursion to Butchart Gardens included a stop at Butterfly World. Two miles from Butchart Gardens, Butterfly World is a huge exotic plant greenhouse that is home for thousands of butterflies from around the world.
The butterflies are ordered and delivered in pupa stage and allowed to hatch and acclimate to this indoor environment. Many very large moths and colorful butterflies sail around you headed for bromeliads and other tropical plants. Ducks,birds and koi enjoy the stream that flows through the environment. The humidity is maintained through misters.
Look in the photos on these pages and see the butterflies and moths in flight and at rest.
Docents with mini mobile microphones and amplifiers explain the life cycle of the insects.
This attraction also has a wonderful gift shop.
