There are many companies that sell butterflies for release at special events such as weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and etc. If you are thinking of having a butterfly release please consider the downside to the butterflies. They are stuffed into envelopes or bags and remain there until they are released. Some of the butterflies die during shipping and some of the ones that survive are so weakened that they cannot fly upon release. A number of butterflies die shortly after they are released because they are out of their natural habitat and their new environment may not be suitable for them.
