This website from the Virtual Museum of Canada introduces budding entomologists and other curious visitors to butterflies and moths found in both Canada and Peru. The site's Gallery allows visitors to peruse images of many beautiful moths and butterflies accompanied by concise descriptive information about Life History, Habitat and Range, Host Plants, Flight Period, and more. Notably, site visitors can choose to display thumbnail images of different butterfly and moth species by Habitat, Families, or Colour. The Teachers and Games section of the site offers a number of classroom activity descriptions, and self-directed educational games for students. The site also has a nice illustrated Questions & Answers section, information about butterfly conservation in Canada and Peru, a sizeable Bibliography, and a helpful Glossary.
