Bright Sky Butterflies’ owner, Angie Thompson, fell in love with monarch butterflies after seeing the film “Flight of the Butterflies” about the incredible annual monarch migration. She began breeding monarch butterflies as a hobby in 2013, raising and releasing thousands of monarch butterflies in her hometown of San Diego, California to help rebuild the declining western monarch population.
After moving to Lafayette, Louisiana in 2017, Angie began breeding eastern monarch butterflies, opening Bright Sky Butterflies in 2020 to share her passion for monarchs with others and to help rebuild the eastern monarch population. Bright Sky Butterflies is dedicated to providing healthy, young, vividly-colored butterflies for release at special events. Make your event memorable with monarch butterflies!
