Butterfly Conservatory Of Goa, Goa Overview

The Butterfly Conservatory of Goa is a butterfly sanctuary and garden in the Ponda district of Goa. Spread over 4000 square metres, it is designed as a place to stroll and absorb in the serene beauty of nature. In the vast expanses of the garden, one can take a leisurely walk and observe over a hundred different species of butterflies from close quarters.

One of the main attractions of the Butterfly Conservatory of Goa is The Butterfly Pub, which is the spot for mud-puddling of the males of the species. This is where the male butterflies gather in the puddles and muddy areas to absorb nutrients like salts and amino acids before the mating ritual. The park, also known as Mystic Woods, is owned and maintained by nature lovers and enthusiasts Dr Jyoti and Yashodhan Hablekar who built up the place from scratch.
