ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY OF BUTTERFLY FARMING

The average life cicle of butterflies is about a month. In the wild, less than 5% of butterflies reaches its adult stage due to natural predators such as birds, spiders, lizards, ants and frogs, and parasites (wasps, flies), fungi, bacteria and viruses.


Butterfly farming provides food and shelter so 80% reach their adult stage. This activity contributes to the conservation and population growth of species, returning to the environment a considerable amount of butterflies and preserve their habitat.

In agreement with CVC was established:

BUTTERFLY FARMING AS ALTERNATIVE FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT FOR RURAL COMMUNITIES IN COLOMBIA

This way we protect the natural resources of the villages of El Arenillo, Iracales y Gualanday  in La Buitrera, Palmira City.
