Setting farm-raised butterflies free can cause a number of issues from spreading diseases that can result in making native populations weaker or cause die-offs and adding bad genes to populations of wild butterflies that are a result of being overbred. Experts are also worried about how releases confuse the study of natural butterfly populations, their locations and migration patterns, which we don't understand very well. Even butterflies don't catcha break. Done

Done, thx -what a peculiar idea, didn't even know there were "commercially breeded" /farm raised butterflies.
Suggestion: use the CARE 2 BUTTERFLIES for your party events! way better!

On the surface it seems like a lovely idea--releasing these beautiful butterflies. However, the sad reality has been exposed. Thanks to those that have made the unseen consequences available.
How about giving a vial with a native tree as a favor. Oh, and be sure to use birdseed rather than rice at a wedding! Thanks.
