Izzy, “a butterfly to remind us even though we are apart, your spirit is always with us, forever in our hearts”.
Visitors can journey through the butterfly house with the chance to see the butterflies up close to enjoy the amazing colours of these delicate insects. The location for this exhibit is next to our Cherry crowned mangabey’s; just around the corner from the bottom viewing area for ‘Bears of the Rising Sun’. Not only does the exhibit house the beautiful butterflies but it is home to a number of colourful exotic plants and flowers. Butterfly Glade is another self sufficient enclosure with a bio-mass boiler contributing to our green zoo!
