Butterflies: Student Sustainability Video Festival 68

I'm concluding this installment of the series with some natural beauty in captivity, Exhibit Highlights Butterfly's Beauty, Diversity, Value to Ecosystem from Voice of America (VOA) News.

As spring makes its slow return to the hemisphere, the Smithsonian Institution's Natural History Museum in Washington, D.C., is marking the occasion with one of its most popular exhibits - the Live Butterfly Pavilion. Now in its fifth year, the Pavilion is a warm, lush enclosure filled with beautiful flowering plants, in which visitors interact with hundreds of live butterflies, representing species from around the world. As VOA's Julie Taboh discovered, it's an exhilarating experience.
I write a lot about bees, but Monarch butterflies are in trouble, too, as I've mentioned once.  Perhaps I should write more about their plight.

The Student Sustainability Video Festival will return in May or August.  Until then, Crazy Eddie's Motie News will resume its regular programming, which will likely be about entertainment awards shows and coping with the election of Donald Trump.  Stay tuned.
