PROJECT LEADER.

During the course of 2015, we will be undertaking a new project at Estudio Campana.
 Project Mariposa 2015, will record the Life Cycle of two species of butterflies being bred in captivity.
They are Papilio machaon and Monarch - Monarca. 
In order to produce the butterflies, we will have two small greenhouses; one for plants and early stages of the life cycle and the other for the adult butterflies.
 
The first stage to grow the required plants; Hinojo ( Fennel) ( Foeniculum vulgare ) and Asclepia ( Milkweed ) ( Apocynaceae ) commenced on 21st January 2015 with Vilma Pereira planting the seeds for both varieties of  plants.
 
Each stage of the life cycle during the next 5/6 months, depending on climate, will be photographed or filmed and recorded on this website page.  
 
Please return to this page frequently to view production from eggs to caterpillars; caterpillars to pupa ( crysalis stage ) and then to the adult butterflies.   

This is the link for Project Mariposa at Estudio Campana. Place it on your favourites list!
