Science Centre Singapore
Calling all butterfly lovers, the Science Centre Singapore (SCS) has launched Singapore's first indoor butterfly sanctuary; Butterflies Up-Close!
Open to public from 30 April, this exhibition is the latest addition to SCS's life sciences offerings. It was also brought together by the partnership between SCS and Sentosa's Butterfly and Insect Kingdom (BIK).
Upon entering the gallery, visitors will be greeted with the fascinating information on butterflies, caterpillars as well as the other insects. There are even detailed displays of the life cycle of a butterfly!
The exhibition also features a really huge and pretty art piece that is completely made up of real butterfly wings! Can you guess how many wings are there in total? Don't worry, no butterflies were harmed in the making of this!
There are over 4000 wings in this centrepiece... all carefully positioned to create a beautiful work of art.
