Invertebrates are animals without backbones, from butterflies and bees, to spiders and sea stars. These tiny giants make up 97% of all animal species on our planet and are vital to maintaining the natural functions of our ecosystems. They are pollinators, decomposers, creators of soil, and the base of our food chain.
But they are in trouble.
Global populations of invertebrates are declining at alarming rates. Between 1970 and 2010, it is estimated that invertebrates have declined by 45%.This has drastic implications on our environment and ecosystem.
The good news? TOGETHER, we can protect these tiny but mighty creatures that we can’t live without. YOU have the power to reverse the trajectory of declining invertebrate populations; both in your backyard and across the globe.
With your support, Butterfly Pavilion will continue to conduct groundbreaking research on invertebrate species, from firefly research in Colorado to butterfly farming in Sumatra. We will implement conservation projects like building Pollinator Districts(TM) in Colorado and Turks and Caicos. We will host science and nature-based education programs for children in Colorado, while teaching communities in Tanzania about bee fencing.
We open our doors to 400,000 visitors, and 45,000 school-aged children annually, and invite you to join us in protecting our planet’s most vital creatures!
