Butterfly Pavillion

Log Number: MA-253456-OMS-23

The Rocky Mountain Butterfly Consortium’s Butterfly Pavilion will improve animal welfare to support an increased diversity of invertebrate species, such as insects and crustaceans. Staff will improve animal welfare by implementing environmental controls in the Invertebrate Research and Rearing Lab, rehousing animals in new enclosures, and creating a designated food preparation room. Staff will provide annual training for volunteers and interns and share the results of the project at a professional conference. The Invertebrate Research and Rearing Lab will support the Butterfly Pavilion’s exhibits as well as education, research, and conservation programs.
