Green Hills Butterfly Ranch Tours

Green Hills Butterfly Ranch
It’s hard to imagine biodiversity that’s greater than Green Hills Butterfly Ranch. Though the focus here are the 30 species of butterflies that are researched and reared in the flight area, the ranch also featured over 120 plants species and hundreds of species of birds. Over 230 different bird species have been spotted here on the 100+ acres, and species of spider that was new to science was discovered right here on site. The wealth of biodiversity aside, it’s still the thousands of colorful butterflies that command most visitor’s attention. Over 90 species of butterflies have been researched here on the ranch, and the 3,300 sq. foot flight area is not only the largest butterfly display found anywhere in Belize, but also a place where butterfly manuals are literally researched and written. Whether you’re a butterfly enthusiast or not, be sure to bring your camera along for a walk through the butterfly house, and your travel partner will soon be covered in gently flapping wings. It’s also possible to find energetic hummingbirds flitting about the gardens, and the enthusiastic, knowledgeable staff will explain the fascinating butterfly life cycle from caterpillar through cocoon.
