NATURES DISPLAY

BUTTERFLIES and the RAINFOREST

The noble butterfly is one of Nature’s most exquisitely beautiful creatures. There are approximately 20,000 species of butterflies in the world. Butterfly life span ranges from two weeks to eleven months. Even in today’s high-tech world, the process of caterpillar becoming butterfly remains a mystery.
The exotic butterflies displayed in the Natural Wonders shop come from the canopies of the Central and South American rain forests.  We bring these displays to Sedona to economically offset rain forest destruction, and to share these works of art and nature with visitors to his shop.
Raised in butterfly farms primarily in the Peruvian Amazon, the stunning creatures are handled by caretakers in thousands of acres set aside just for the butterflies. They are collected once they have naturally died; no butterflies are ever killed, nor are any endangered species ever used.Reinforcing butterfly populations and helping to create an economy around butterflys is of great importance. This creates a positive ripple effect that helps boost local economies, which ultimately protects the rainforests from destructive actions.While ninety-eight percent of the butterflies sold in the shop come from Peru, the butterfly “farmers” help to repopulate other vital rainforest areas. This is done by releasing certain species into specific ecosystems and creating a cycle of rebirth.
When you visit the lovely Natural Wonders store in Sedona, be sure to browse our butterfly displays. They make wonderful gifts, as well as décor for your own home. And – you will be helping to preserve our precious rainforests.
