Since 1998, the Jardin Botanique de Montreal organizes a very unique event called Papillons en Liberté and this year will be bigger than ever. The event starts Thursday February 19th and lasts until April 26th.

During that time, the Grande Serre at the Jardin Botanique will be filled with thousands of butterflies, 20,000 to be precise. The colorful insects will be released 100 at a time of over the course of the event and the room will hold nearly 2,000 butterflies at any given time. This year, the event features 50 different species from Costa Rica, El Salvador, Kenya, Malaysia, the Philippines and Tanzania.
