Where Do the Butterflies Come from?
The butterfly specimens that are used in butterfly prints come
from butterfly farms in Australia, Asia, North, Central and
Southern America rainforest areas which breed and supply living
and non-living butterfly specimens for collectors all around the
world. Using butterflies from the wild is not an option for these
artists because they are damaged. All butterflies used in
butterfly prints are legally imported to the U.S.
Butterfly farms are economical because they help to save the
rainforest. They provide foreign people with other income rather
than clearing the tropical forest. Raising butterflies to sell is
the only incentive they have to save their rainforests.
Protecting Your Prints
Butterflies used in the prints are naturally preserved. They
should retain their beauty for years, providing they are kept from
high humidity and bright sunlight. The prints should also be kept
from extreme temperatures.
