It’s that time of year- where the butterfly gardens settle down for the winter.
Beauty soars in the spring and summer at the Calgary Zoo- that’s when butterflies return to the Garden Gallery in the ENMAX Conservatory. These insects are a favourite at the zoo, and they’re also seasonal; many zoo visitors know to keep any eye out for the flutter of new wings in late April and early May, and that they leave again in October. Why are these butterflies so important?
At the Calgary Zoo, we have endless stories to share about our animals, our people and our conservation work. Whether we are inspiring our visitors to love nature, saving species in western Canada from extinction or working with scientists on the other side of the globe, our ultimate goal is simple: to help wildlife and keep it wild.
