Proud Member of the IBBA Since 2009

  The IBBA is a not-for-profit Trade Organization concerned specifically with the issues of butterfly breeding, releases, education, exhibition, scientific study of the butterfly world, and many other aspects of lepidoptera.

  All IBBA Members are asked to abide by this ethical code.

No shipment of butterflies from the wild; hand-reared individuals only
Shipped where regulation permits
When shipping for environmental release, ship only when weather conditions allow for butterfly survival
Ship only healthy, vigorous butterflies
Ship in containers with packing that best protects the butterflies
Supply pertinent instructions as appropriate to insure the well-being and safety of the livestock

  Butterfly people are a different type of person in the respect that they pay attention to detail, willingly adhere to strict guidelines of ethical breeding and handling of butterflies, have a thirst for more knowledge in the field, and are always looking for new and better ways to enhance their expertise.
