Heliconius Butterfly Works is fully licensed by the Ecuadorian Ministry of the Environment, and we have a strong commitment to conservation of Ecuador's forests and exceptional biodiversity, working closely with local and international organizations. Over our many years in butterfly farming, we have seen how working with local families can contribute to making conservation an economically attractive alternative.

Butterflies of the genus Heliconius, also known as longwings, are among the most attractive and interesting species for live butterfly exhibits. They are exceptionally long-lived, display a broad range of patterns and colors, and fly well in a variety of light conditions.

Having co-evolved with their cyanide-rich passion flower host plants and evidencing both Müllerian and Batesian mimicry, these neotropical butterflies are not only beautiful but also living illustrations of fascinating ecological phenomena.
