Phuket butterflies to take wings in the wild

PHUKET: Two-thousand butterflies will be released into the wild on November 26 as part of the fifth annual Butterfly Release Charity event put on by Phuket Butterfly Garden and Insect World.

The free-admission event will be held from 9am to 2pm at Bang Pae Waterfall in the Khao Phra Thaew Wildlife Reserve in Thalang.

At the event’s auction participants will be able to bid on a variety of environmentally-friendly goods, as well as the opportunity to release 500 of the 2,000 butterflies planned to be released that day.

“A butterfly is the symbol of nature’s richness. The more butterflies that live in an area, the more balanced the ecosystem is. I would like anyone who is available to join at the event and help save our wildlife,” said Managing Director Wasin Koysiripong.

In addition to the auction and the butterfly release, 800 trees are to be planted at the event.

All donations received from the event will be given to the Phuket Special School and the Gibbon Rehabilitation Program.
