Tennessee Aquarium visitors can join a keeper for a daily butterfly release. More than one thousand butterflies live in the tropical garden inside the Ocean Journey building. These colorful beauties come from several locations around the world. In this video you'll learn that most come to the Aquarium primarily from Central and South America where butterfly farmers raise pupae for aquariums, botanical gardens and zoos around the world. Butterfly farms not only provide income for these families, they are preserving vital habitat which might otherwise be clear-cut for other agricultural purposes.
