Butterfly Pavilion

a CILC Content Provider

Content provider's logo

At Butterfly Pavilion, we transform the way people think about invertebrates. These small but mighty animals that surround us are so much more than people think. They are everywhere, because everything depends on them. They are the hidden heroes of the animal kingdom, and we--you and us--stand on the backs of these tiny giants. 

Butterfly Pavilion is the first stand-alone, Association of Zoos and Aquariums-accredited non-profit invertebrate zoo in the world and a leader in invertebrate knowledge, inspiration and connection. Our virtual programs feature interactive, real-time lessons on-screen facilitated by a Butterfly Pavilion educator, live on-screen animal experiences and/or exploration of real-world conservation topics and curriculum-aligned content that uses visual and audio media to illustrate science concepts.
