The Phuket News - Monday, 14th Nov 2011 06:00


PHUKET: Two thousand butterflies are to be released on November 26 at Bang Pae Waterfall and Khao Pra Teaw Wildlife Reserve, with activities starting at 9:30 am.


Five hundred of the butterflies, all raised at the Phuket Butterfly Garden & Insect World in Phuket Town, will be auctioned to raise funds for the Gibbon Rehabilitation Project and the Banya Nukul School for Handicapped Children.


In addition to the butterfly release, 800 bushes and trees that provide food for butterflies will be planted in the area.


It will be the fifth time the butterfly garden has organised a mass release. The garden’s managing director, Wasin Koysiripong, told The Phuket News: “Anyone can join in – there will be no park entry fee that day – and children who come along will get a free gift from us.”


The butterfly release will begin at 9:30am and the tree planting at 9:45am. These will be followed by other activities including a show for children and organised games.


Companies are invited set up booths at the site. There is no charge for the booths but companies must pledge to donate all proceeds from the day to charity. The deadline for booth applications is November 21. To book, call the butterfly garden at 076 210 861 or email info@phuketbutterfly.com
