Discover the fascinating world of nature in all its arrays: experience a colourful ballet of exotic butterflies flying freely around you, observe the secretive creatures of the night, watch rainbow toucans and indigenous butterflies, arthropods with amazing forms and wooly pigs working as landscape architects. Let us take you on an exciting journey at Papiliorama in Kerzers!
The Nocturama is quite a unique exhibit : Its translucid roof filters daylight approximately a thousand times, thus creating an artificial moonlight. The effective inversion of the day and night cycle allow visitors to wander through a tropical American forest during night-time, when nocturnal animals are active. Alongside trails, you shall encounter sloth, tree porcupines, night monkeys, kinkajous, ocelots, giant anacondas and many others.
In 2004, the Papiliorama opened a futuristic-looking aviary for local butterflies. Totalling almost 500 m2, the Swiss Butterfly Garden recreates several natural habitats vital for indigenous butterflies, such as lowland dry meadows, meadows growing on the dry rocky slopes of the Jura foothills, among others. During the summer season, about 10 species of butterflies – non of them rare ones – live and complete their life cycle in the Swiss Butterfly Garden.
The aim of the aviary is foremost to bring to light the habitats that butterflies need for they survival, but also to show how these habitats are eventually disappearing from our countryside. The Swiss Butterfly Garden is completed by an indoor exhibit about local butterflies, created in partnership with Pro Natura.
