All of the real exotic butterflies, moths, beetles, spiders and other framed insects used in our quality displays have been raised on natural cruelty free tropical farms around the world. These educational farms provide a real source of income for native people who would otherwise have to sell trees off of their land or raise cattle which are both ecologic disasters.
Tropical butterflies, moths, beetles, spiders and other insects are important members of these fragile ecosystems. If their natural habitats are allowed to disappear, then they too will vanish forever. Everything possible must be done to preserve them.
Wild butterfly collecting is not only uneconomic, but the specimens are irreparably damaged and of no use for this type of display.
We deal in quality handmade educational butterfly art made from real butterflies, moths, beetles, spiders and insects. All of our framed butterflies and insects include Latin names and place of origin, as well as care sheets. We are proud to say all our insects are mounted by hand and then put into their frames by us in New Zealand. All our frames are made in New Zealand, out of New Zealand renewable pine.
