Butterfly Paradise at ZSL London Zoo from ZSL - London Zoo
New butterfly experience most popular with the visitors
Throughout 2006 two major new exhibits were under renovation and construction on the ZSL London Zoo site.
An initially temporary Butterfly house was designed to improve the visitor experience at the site during the disruption of the construction work.
This exhibit, Butterfly Paradise, has proven to be extremely successful for both public and animals. It has been built at a cost of £130,000, a cost effective exhibit in relation to its size and popularity.
Visitor surveys indicate that it was the most popular exhibit at ZSL London Zoo in 2006 and its links to sustainable community butterfly farming projects ensure that conservation benefits also accrue.
It has now become a long-term exhibit feature and is helping to inform butterfly exhibit and management refinements.
