I have an opportunity to become part in the development of the intended Eastern Cape Butterfly Sanctuary (ECBS) in becoming either a partner in this venture with Conservation of Butterflies in South Africa (CBISA) or a sole owner.
The estimated costs of the construction of the intended Butterfly Sanctuary is between 1.5 to 2 million Rand. The development is estimated to take a period of between 8 to 15 months (depending on local municipality and weather conditions). Estimated income from the venture is between 800 000.000 to 1.5 million Rand per month (taking into consideration all holidays and non seasonal times).
These are butterfly domes (Lepidomes) also referred to as Butterfly Breeding Centres in which butterflies are bred to be sold for butterfly weddings and all other functions. The releasing of butterflies in localised areas helps populate butterfly colonies and at the same time providing the owner with a reasonable monthly income. The lepidome is 12m x 6m x 2.4m high at its highest point. The cost of such a lepidome is approximately R 15 000.00. The construction of the lepidome is between 6 to 14 days (depending on weather conditions). Earning between R 15 000.00 to R 35 000.00 per month (depending on the month and availability of butterflies bred). These Lepidomes suite the areas in which there are either farmers or small land holdings.
I have already acquired a small holding but need some funds to start with the butterfly breeding centre
