Butterfly Garden

Butterfly Garden in Puerto Princesa

The Butterfly Garden, or now called the Butterfly Eco-Garden and Tribal Village, is a butterfly sanctuary and cultural experience facility in Puerto Princesa City, Palawan. The site is one of the most frequented destinations in Puerto Princesa, especially as part of a day trip within the city. It showcases different species of butterflies as well as other insects and animals and the chance to meet and learn the culture of one of Palawan’s indigenous tribes.


Butterfly and Animal Haven

True to its name, the Butterfly Garden is home to several species and a variety of butterflies endemic to the South Philippines and even from neighboring regions. It provides a visual experience for visitors seeing these colorful insects, from their birth and growing process to how they interact with their surroundings once all grown-up.

Apart from butterflies, the eco-garden also houses other kinds of insects like the walking stick, mantis, stag beetle, and millipedes and a wide variety of flora that these creatures call home. Other animals in the sanctuary include scorpions, geckos, and green-crested lizards.


Central to the eco-garden’s existence is its advocacy for conservation of Palawan’s endemic flora and fauna, especially with the region’s acclaim of being the “Last Frontier” of the country. Endangered and vulnerable animals like the Palawan bearcat, Philippine saltwater crocodile, and Palawan peacock pheasant can be found in the eco-garden and the facility guides take time in explaining how to protect these creatures and how to be ambassadors for nature and the environmental conservation in general.
