Turtle Centre wildlife updates

This week the Cayman Turtle Centre: Island Wildlife Encounter reports that at the West Bay attraction this year’s second group of juvenile captive-bred white-crowned pigeons are being prepared for their imminent release, which will be coming up within the next couple of weeks.

“Also the Butterfly Garden exhibit is starting to ‘blossom’ with more color and numbers as the butterfly breeding season comes in,” said the Centre’s terrestrial exhibits curator Geddes Hislop.

“Soon we will get more variety as migrant butterflies start showing up. We are starting to see some migratory Gulf Fritillaries right now. Things will get into full swing closer to November when the Butterfly Garden is one year old.”
