Mombasa Visits Switzerland and Germany

Mombasa Visits Switzerland and Germany

Spring Greetings from Papiliorama-Switzerland & Garten der Schmetterlinge Schloss Sayn-Germany.

My name is Maria Fungomeli from Kenya, the Curator & Research Scientist of the Mombasa Butterfly House. I am on a Butterfly house learning visit to Switzerland & Germany. I aim to gain skills, knowledge and networking in exhibit management. The training will be instrumental in managing and running the recently opened Mombasa Butterfly House in Kenya.
Mombasa Butterfly House located at the Fort Jesus Museum UNESCO World Heri-tage Site is a Project of the National Museums of Kenya, within the Biodiversity De-partment and funded by USAID. The main objective is to link sustainable forest conservation to local community livelihoods by serving as a local market for butter-fly pupa from butterfly farmers adjacent to coastal forests.
