Would like to get some feedback about ordering butterfly specimens (would order ones native to my area) in order to show/share with the public when at various events.
I ordered a couple of butterflies before in order to do a couple of events with children, and I was thinking about ordering more because the last two were getting a little ragged.
Do you all think this is okay? I admit to feeling so many different ways about it. They source their butterflies from butterfly farms.
People love to handle the butterflies--I think getting to hold them is very important, even the adults were moved about being so close to one.
Just trying to increase exposure and awareness. To me it seems if people can see them up close as "specimens" they will be more likely to tune in when something flits by them in life.
