Butterflies 101

Become a butterfly expert! Learn all about butterflies with this in-depth look at the fascinating details of these incredible creatures that hold captive our hearts as much as our eyes. Every incredible flash of color seen as a butterfly flutters by is the result of their magnificent and miraculous life cycle – a long and arduous journey. In this program, learn about each stage in their lives and the amazing adaptations that make them unique even among insects. Discover the differences between moths and butterflies – it’s not nearly as simple as most expect. Find out the threats facing butterflies today and why people don’t see as many now as remembered in years past; and how to help bring them back. Learn about the monarchs’ astonishing 2000-mile migration, how it’s possible, and how scientists have learned so much about them. And hear interesting behind-the-scenes details about the Cecil B. Day Butterfly Center and how it came to be. Leave this program with a new perspective on butterflies: not only exceptionally beautiful, but also beautifully complex!
