How they're sourced:

Peruvian butterflies are "farm raised" in a large plot of land to protect them from outside predators. They have an average lifespan of one week to two months depending on species, are quite common, not endangered, and live out their entire life cycle. After the butterflies naturally pass, they are gently picked up and preserved.
