The Florida Native Butterfly Society has a greenhouse in downtown Fort Myers where they raise and release butterflies.

The conservatory is full of fluttering Florida butterflies.

The staff at the Florida Native Butterfly Society is focused on educating the public about the importance of native butterflies and want to teach people that they can help the butterflies repopulate.

You can witness the full life cycle of butterflies here.

Butterflies are released into the conservatory when they reach adult age. Then, they find their mate and lay eggs. The staff then collects the eggs to raise them in the nursery. This starts the cycle over again.
The only butterflies you will see in the conservatory are Florida natives. They also have about 100 of Florida’s state butterfly, the Zebra Longwing.
