A park where the Butterfly will look ?

Butterflies are some of the most beautiful and interesting creatures on Earth. A butterfly garden is an easy way to see more butterflies and to help them, since many natural butterfly habitats have been lost to human activities like building homes, roads and farms.

Butterflies have a special place in the insect world. Children love butterflies for their beautiful and brightly-coloured wings.  On World Environment Day, they got a special treat as a butterfly park was opened for public at Asola Bhatti Wildlife  Delhi government with an aim to increase awareness as well as sensitize people about butterflies.

Spread over 2.5 acres, the park has been made with minimum intervention and disturbance to the existing floura and fauna. The park has 60 varieties of native trees and 25 species of host plants .More than 30 varieties of nectar plants are also placed in the park which will attract many common and rare species of butterflies. Till now 64 species of butterflies have been recorded in the park.  Children can spot here some common species of butterflies like Tiny Grass Blue, Blue Tiger, Plain Tiger, Striped Tiger, Emigrant, Pioneer, White Orange Tip etc as well as some rare species like Indian Skipper, Red Flash, Indian Palm Bob and Three Ring etc.
