Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/21/2017 -- As many people already know, Earth Day is on Saturday, April 22, 2017. The Philadelphia Insectarium and Butterfly Pavilion, located on Frankford Avenue in Philadelphia, PA, looks to celebrate Earth Day by helping others understand what butterflies mean to the environment as well as offering 50% off all admission into the museum on Saturday, April 22, 2017, from 9 a.m. until 5 pm.
Philadelphia Insectarium and Butterfly Pavilion has been the home to beautiful insects from all over the world for over 25 years. This past February, they debuted a 7,000-square foot butterfly pavilion attached to the Insectarium, which has hundreds of native and tropical butterflies along with many other rare and exotic arthropods. The pavilion is a permanent ecosphere that features live butterflies, and it's also one of the largest of its kind throughout North America.
What the Philadelphia Insectarium and Butterfly Pavilion wants people to understand is that butterflies are more important to the environment than they may realize. Butterfly conservation is essential to ensuring the environment remains healthy as the insects provide a number of environmental benefits, which include pollination and natural pest control.
Butterflies offer many types of value to the planet. They are not only a vital element of the food chain, meaning that birds, bats, and other animals consider them prey, but they also offer an aesthetic value with their beauty alone.
