Simply Butterflies Conservation Center

From the Chocolate Hills, Kuya Ricky took us to the Butterfly Sanctuary in the next town of Bilar. From the road, it wasn’t really noticeable, but what’s so good about this place was that there is a designated tour guide who really explains everything there is to know about butterflies - the difference of the pattern, how to know which is male and which is female, and a whole lot more. K and I are very amazed at how much knowledge we’ve learned about these fascinating creatures.

The Simply Butterflies Conservation Center was the first butterfly livelihood program in Bohol. It’s purpose was to protect and strengthen the natural environment of the butterflies, through plant research, breeding and releasing.

According to the guide, there’s a butterfly enclosure where they keep the butterfly and some of them they release in order for them to breed in the wild. They also breed butterflies for export and selling - which then helps fund the center.
