I love getting commissions from you guys that are intended as gifts. not because of the money, but because i get so excited for someone to receive such a thoughtful and personal gift. this sounds silly, but it makes me feel so proud. like, someone wanted to give a unique gift that really means something, and that’s super thoughtful and awesome and i’m proud of you for being a great human. this particular commission, for example, was from a husband to his wife. he wanted his wife to feel beautiful and powerful and connected to the nature she loves, and to feel that way every day by looking at this piece. how friggin awesome is that? best husband ever award, right? knowing that people like him are out there in the world means so much more to me than money ever will 🙌🏻💕

Raising or collecting insects to sell is the only incentive many indigenous peoples have to save their tropical forests.
virgin tropical forests are declining at an alarming rate - over half have been cleared in the last 40 years. the case for saving tropical forests is clear. support comes from buying "products of the rainforest." "collecting tropical butterflies does not speed up their extinction." the fact is, buying tropical insects for collections may be the best investment anyone makes in tropical forest protection. papua new guinea has some of the world's most desirable insects including two of the largest butterflies which are the queen alexandra's birdwing and the goliath birdwing and it has the world's longest walking stick, largest katydid, and a weevil that grows a garden of lichens and mosses on its back!
add to this 3000+ species of orchids, 10% of the world's rhododendrons, the coveted bird-of-paradise and more. to insure their future survival, png set up an entity to develop an insect resource program which farms insects. due to its success it became a role model for many other butterfly farms and similar projects throughout the world
