Bali Butterfly Park or Bali Butterfly Park is an extraordinary activity in Bali to visit butterfly and insect conservation facilities that exhibit various specimens through a garden area of 3,000 square meters located in the village of Wanasari, 6.5 km north of the district capital Tabanan and 30 km northwest of Denpasar. This park claims to be the largest of its kind in Asia. Butterfly Park is a convenient stopover for traveling to the northern region of the island through Tabanan. Here, visiting families will experience an educational and inspiring tour to see hundreds of butterflies from 15 known species that live in Indonesia's tropical regions, as well as various insects and other arachnids in a broad and informative display.
In addition to the many living specimens bred at the Bali Butterfly Park, there are also collections of dried butterfly specimens and insects (butterflies have different but naturally short life spans) which can also be souvenirs, arranged in glass frames. Visitors will have the opportunity to see specimens from near, colorful and protected, such as ordinary birds (Troides helena) and Bali peacocks (Papilio peranthus) and large birds of paradise (Ornithoptera paradisea).
Unique and strange-looking stick insects, leaf insects, scorpions, large hairy spiders and various beetles are displayed in glass boxes. Various species from all over the Indonesian archipelago are collected in a comfortable garden. An interesting and very educational part of this tour is the opportunity for young people to observe closely the various stages of metamorphosis of various species, ranging from eggs, larvae and cocoons, to large cocoons and butterflies. The Bali Butterfly Park serves as an ex-situ conservation site and preserves several endangered species in its collection. It also serves as a research center for national and international researchers and academics.
Bali Butterfly Park was opened in 1993 after the International Butterfly Conference was held that year in Makassar, South Sulawesi, with the idea that the rich world of Indonesian insects must be promoted for environmental care for the people of Indonesia. This park is one of the stops highlighted among international visitors who tour through the northern region via Tabanan.
Located at an altitude that is suitable for insects to breed, in the Sandan Lebah hamlet, Wanasari, Tabanan, on a journey with natural attractions from Jatiluwih rice fields, hot springs, and Mount Batukaru. To be able to watch and enjoy the view of the many live specimens flying on the attached flower garden courtyard, visitors must arrive early, preferably before 10:00 am when the species is most active, sucking fresh dew and honey.
