During my visit to the zoo, I veered towards the butterfly gardens and enter upon an area roofed with a clear fabric mesh. I noticed that swaths of butterflies were stationed in winged clusters flapping against the fabric. And I thought, monarchs are migratory, but here their travels have ended. Then I noticed the absence of bees. In my garden they are a constant.
Should the zoo be petitioned to open its butterfly garden to all and sundry, make it an open air market for pollinators and free ranging butterflies?
