Pilpintuwasi Butterfly Farm, Iquitos

(480+ reviews on the web)
Wildlife Area
Stop by Pilpintuwasi Butterfly Farm to admire a range of Amazonian animals and see the impressive and important conservation and research work done by a non-profit organization. The dazzling array of winged beasts in the butterfly house is complemented by the amount of information given to visitors here; you'll learn about each stage of a butterfly's life through an introductory talk and displays. The center has grown beyond butterflies in recent years, with greater emphasis on providing a sanctuary for orphaned, abused, and neglecting animals from across the Amazon. Put Pilpintuwasi Butterfly Farm into our Iquitos tourist route planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • The best way to learn about the cycle of life through the butterfly, as well as the best way to learn to value the life of animals. Grateful for the effort which Gudrun Sperrer and her team to promote culture and respect for the rights of animals. I run immpresionada by love and passion with which aminisytran from the Center. I think that voluntary support is basic and why the apyoprivado should not give its grain of sand, and replicate this type of nonprofit centers.
