Rancho Baiguate jointly with the Entomologist Kelvin Guerrero, has developed the first concrete initiative in the country of a sustainable project of raising and exhibition of species of Dominican butterflies. This project basically has three phases:
  Ecological butterfly garden jarabacoa  Property of butterflies, where these put eggs in host plants
  Raising of the caterpillars  Raising of the caterpillars
  Exhibition of the butterflies  Exhibition of the butterflies in mariposario PAPILLON GARDEN,     
    constructed for such effect.

Our project is merely sustainable; we did not collect species of wild butterflies, reason why we did not hit the natural populations. We raised the species of butterflies in our property. In addition we contributed to the biological control of mechanical way, collecting the worms of the butterflies that attack the fruit cultures like citruses, passion fruit and granadillo. Also we helped to maintain the wild populations of butterflies within lands of Rancho Baiguate through promotion of the gardens of butterflies. PAPILLON GARDEN, 6 species of pertaining butterflies of two relatives are exhibited who are very common and frequent throughout the year and with an ample distribution of all the national geography from level zone to mountainous areas.
