The Maui Butterfly Farm
The Maui Butterfly Farm is a fun and educational experience! Take your little ones here to play and learn! You will have just as much fun as they do. The owners of the farm come from a private Oxford (UK) education specializing in Animal Science and Agriculture. They are passionate about saving the declining butterfly population here in Hawaii as well as educating those around us on how to create and maintain a healthy environment here in the Islands in order to help them as best we can. You can learn about how to do your part and stop them from rapidly disappearing throughout the Islands as well as the US mainland.
Butterflies bring joy to everyone around them. The farm’s hands on tours promote education. Not only education about the environment but education regarding insects, the benefits of butterflies and the ways in which to take care of our ‘aina (land) here in Hawaii.
