Photo News Release
Butterfly Jungle Takes Flight
      Mary McGee, age 7, got an up-close look at some butterflies this morning at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. Butterfly Jungle, an annual event where guests can be immersed by thousands of butterflies as they walk through the Safari Parks Hidden Jungle aviary, opens this Saturday, March 16.
 
      The 30 butterfly species highlighted this year hail from Africa, Asia and Central and South America and include the zebra longwing, orange-barred tiger and Grecian shoemaker. Old favorites such as the monarch, giant swallowtail and blue morpho also will be charming guests.
 
     Butterfly Jungle is included with admission to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
