  • The Bobiri Forest is blessed with a rich diversity of colourful butterflies. However, their vast ecotourism potential has not been optimally explored by the government of Ghana and the Management of the site. The intent of this article is to create awareness about the only Butterfly Sanctuary in West Africa to create an enabling environment for man, business opportunities as well as promote the development of forest fringe communities while conserving forest resources. Each stage of the butterflies’ life cycle presents great lessons for man especially the pupa stage where the butterfly is emancipated. Their global distribution, prevalence in the Bobiri Butterfly Sanctuary, life expectancy and migration has been presented. Research shows that caterpillar production has the potential to prevent forest degradation and also improve the livelihood of people engaged in it with Tanzania as a model.
