Dated: March 28 2015
Not far from Nyack, New York is the American Museum of Natural History. Founded in 1869, the American Museum of Natural History is still guided by it's global mission to discover, interpret and disseminate information about Human Cultures, the Natural World and the Universe through a wide ranging program of scientific research, education and exhibition.
At the Whitney Hall of Oceanic Birds, second floor, the iconic, annual and ever astonishing Butterfly Conservatory is open, featuring up to 500 live, free flying tropical butterflies from South, Central and North America, Africa and Asia. They live in a natural habitat- a vivarium-which approximates their original habitat with live flowering plants. The butterfly species includes iridescent Blue Morpho Butterflies, striking Scarlet Swallowtails and large Owl Butterflies. To learn more about the evolution, life cycle, anatomy, farming and conservation of butterflies, look closely at the illustrated displays throughout the exhibition.
