great tour for kids and adults Jul 12, 2012
Simply Butterflies Conservation Center is located in Bilar town. This medium size butterfly conservation is the first butterfly livelihood breeding program in Bohol.

Entrance is PhP20.00 per person which is really cheap! It’s not even a dollar if converted.

The guy who toured us around has a wacky personality but possesses a very good sense of humor. The kids loved him! He was well-versed with butterflies so he fits perfectly as butterfly tour guide. My kids were so amused when he told and showed them a “gay” butterfly!

We all enjoyed this tour because we were able to see and observe the whole life cycle of this beautiful insect – from the courting stage, mating, laying of eggs; from a caterpillar, to a chrysalis, and finally into a whole new creation --the wondrous butterfly! Metamorphosis from worm to butterfly is baffling yet truly fascinating!

An enclosure was built to protect the butterflies from predators which can give them 70% survival rate. Outside, survival rate is only 2%. Several of its kind is enclosed in a 30 x 30 foot net, provided with flowering and host plants and water.

The highlight of our tour was, we were taken a photo with butterfly wings on our back. We were asked to jump at the count of three and then a shutter clicks! The result is an awesome flying human butterfly! Of course, it’s a computer generated one!

The center is equipped with restrooms. And there is also a small souvenir shop and coffee shop.
