All of our specimens are hand-raised or from sustainable sources such as butterfly farms, aviaries, and nurseries. These establishments are located on all corners of the globe including Africa, Central and South America, and Southeast Asia, to name a few. Supporting a market for insects as artwork and educational specimens creates jobs in third world countries and an industry that is motivated by maintaining insect populations and their natural habitats, rather than their destruction. Your purchase helps prevent extinction and supports the fight against deforestation and habitat destruction worldwide.
A portion of all purchases at Morbid Orchid Co is donated to Xerces Society; an international non-profit organization, whose mission it is to protect wildlife through the conservation of invertebrates and their habitats.
