    Butterflies are our primary focus, but all of nature is connected and interdependent; so we do research in many ecological areas. To have stable, healthy butterflies, we must also have clean water and healthy plant, insect and amphibian populations, so our research extends to these areas.  The Conservatory land is adjacent to a natural reserve and two rivers, where we conduct and monitor diversity surveys, environmental studies, and water quality programs.

    The Butterfly Conservatory provides a natural laboratory where Biologists and other concerned scientists can do field research.  The more we monitor and learn about our environment under stress, the better equipped we will be to protect it.  Our hope is that our grandchildren and yours will be able to experience the endless wonders in the Neo-tropics, with a natural balance in the carbon/oxygen ratio.
