The Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory located at 1316 Duval Street, Key West, Florida, USA is a butterfly park that houses from 50-60 different species of live butterflies from around the world in a climate controlled, glass enclosed habitat.

The conservatory includes flowering plants, cascading waterfalls and trees. There are also several species of free flying "butterfly friendly" birds, such as red-factor canaries, zebra finches, cordon-blue finches and "button" or Chinese painted quail.[1]

There is a learning center where guests can get a close up view of a variety of live caterpillars feeding and developing on their host plants.[2]
