A word from the creator
We are also excited to let you know that we host family workshops on butterfly ecology for curious people beyond 8 years old to learn about the butterfly world and discover how we can regenerate ecosystems together.
We'll host a virtual program on special butterflies in North America in May.
***Volunteer with us!***
Since 2017, we've used the butterfly pictures to host many butterfly workshops in elementary schools, libraries, and community centers to promote eco-conservation and human-wildlife co-existence.
Join our eco-edutaining workshops on butterfly ecology. We’ll provide new volunteers with individual orientations to interact actively and positively with children as well as adults using our game-driven learning materials.
As a volunteer, you will learn about the butterfly world, eco-friendly gardening, and interpersonal skills, and we appreciate your participation as an invaluable part of
preserving natural and cultural resources for generations to come.

Your donation will make it possible for our good intention to print the butterfly pictures as educational instruments in our family workshops and as art exhibits in schools and libraries to inspire children as well as adults to understand the ecology of butterflies, which are placed biologically at the bottom of the nature’s food chain in the larval stage, providing food for other creatues like bees, mantis, lizards, and birds, for a bio-diverse eco-system.
Less than 5% of the larvae can grow up to their full life cycles. If they survive after eclosion, butterflies become delightful pollinators in gardens.
We appreciate your generosity and cordially invite you to the exhibits of our butterfly pictures at:
