Here at Wye Valley Butterfly Zoo we are not just passionate about butterfly conservation, we really work at it. We support sustainable Butterfly Farming worldwide through trade: This devalues collected specimens and preserves rainforest and other habitats. We also manage our own Nature Reserve, commissioned from Barnaby Millard, Conservation Landscape Architect. Wye Valley Butterfly Zoo is heated only by renewable energy.
After closing due to flooding in February 2020 and lockdown it has now reopened in August 2021 with online booking. Please book in advance to avoid disappointment.
