The flying Jewels Butterflies are important nature creatures because of their diversity, ecological role and influence on agriculture, human health and natural resources. They have been used in landmark studies in climate change, developmental biology, ecology, evolution, genetics and physiology. They are the major groups of Arthropods and the most diverse group of animals on the earth with over million described species. Approximately 1, 70,000 butterflies are available all over the world.


As a part of research, we have conducted experimental biodiversity programmes to create knowledge, interest and necessary skills to investigate and identify the butterfly species diversity, in schools and college campuses. For elaborate research on Butterflies Dr. S. P. Venkata Ramana, Associate Professor, Dept. of Zoology, Yogi Vemana University, Kadapa started one Model Butterfly Park at Yogi Vemana University campus along with Insect museum in 2010, which was inaugurated by Former Vice- Chancellor Prof. Arjula Ramachandra Reddy along with other University Vice-Chancellors.


The Butterfly park & insect museum first of its kind in Andhra Pradesh was established by Yogi Vemana Univesity. Every year it has a collection of 400 to 500 butterflies in number belonging to 40 species displaying in a mosaic of various colors and hues.


In the Insect museum more than 100 species along with life cycles of different butterflies were displayed in beautiful boards. More than 80 to 90 insect dead specimens were also displayed. Every year students from several schools and colleges were visiting the Park and Insect Museum. Also television channels telecasted programmes on the Park and Museum.
