Siquijor Butterfly Sanctuary, Siquijor Island

3.5
#2 of 9 in Wildlife in Siquijor Island
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
Observe and inspect a variety of colorful butterflies and dragonflies at Siquijor Butterfly Sanctuary. The ecologically minded facility raises species collected from the immediate area, Asia, and the rest of the world, with a view to release them into the wild. Here you can see each stage of this creature's fascinating life cycle, from vibrant and alien looking caterpillars, through a range of pupae, to the final majestic finished product (including the huge Attacus Atlas moth). You can buy moderately priced snacks and refreshments on site, with a small donation required for entry. Siquijor Butterfly Sanctuary is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Siquijor Island Edition.

  • After an hour and rain with Google maps and asking residents where. See the trail outside strange sign that says something, not sure what. A specially dug to reach the courtyard of the owners. Small-sized structure of 15X15 meters. Full of plants and butterflies. The place is very quiet and calm. When I arrived I was alone so to me not so much. The staff on the butterflies and their lives. 100 pesos entrance that the money goes to benefit butterflies. I really enjoyed. Highly recommend.
