Conservation Cinema: Sex, Lies, and Butterflies!

September 19, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Butterflies have been flying around our planet for more than 50 million years, and today around 20,000 different species inhabit the globe. Sex, Lies and Butterflies follows their lives from egg to caterpillar to chrysalis to the emergence of the full-blown, winged creature. Explore their astonishing survival techniques, including 360 degree vision, deceptive camouflage, chemical weaponry and fantastic flight. Through sophisticated macro-filming, look beyond the butterflies’ bright colors and fragile beauty to follow them on one of the greatest migrations on earth. The film will be shown in the refuge visitor center’s very fine auditorium. Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfbU0NBXYbg (2018; film runtime: 53 minutes). NO preregistration for this program.
