Belize Blue Morpho Butterflies Flourish in Dubai Butterfly Garden

Belize Blue Morpho Butterflies are blooming in Dubai. A butterfly farm in the south of Belize, Ya’axkin Butterfly Farm successfully exports thousands of pupas which is the transitioning stage of a butterfly. The last shipment of this farm was made two weeks ago to what is known to be the world’s largest covered butterfly garden in Dubai. We spoke to Javier Saqui, owner of Ya’axkin Butterfly Farm, who shared the thrilling experience of seeing their trial run succeed and what great recognition it brings to his community.  

Javier Saqui, Owner, Ya’axkin Butterfly Farm: “Well, this is something great for us because this gives us more opportunity to find more markets around the world where we can export our butterflies. Well we started to export in 2021 but the thing is it was due to COVID we could not export. It was very challenging because these little butterfly pupae that we export they can only stay inside the pupa for a certain number of days. Well, you know, I think it helps my community a lot because you know we will be attracting more visitors to the area and we’ll be getting more development, you know, in terms of people coming in and so that’s one of the things that it does to us here. Shipping them to Dubai is not just a common butterfly garden. As you know, it’s the world’s largest butterfly garden and they don’t just buy from any farms it has to be the quality of the pupae that we produce has to be the best, because they always want the best and that’s what makes it much, much greater for us. It’s huge for us.”

He also explained that because of this success, his farm can now ship thousands more to other countries, increasing his sales rate.
