Time for a field trip! 

As a part of the ‘Bees and Butterflies’ thematic program, on Sunday 3 April 2022, Eco Warriors visited the Bali Butterfly Park in Tabanan Regency to observe the life cycles of butterflies. This activity provided opportunities for the Eco Warriors to see, interact, and even touch numerous living endemic butterflies of Indonesia.

During this activity, they learned about the complete metamorphosis of butterflies, observed directly how the chrysalis transforms into a beautiful butterfly, how moths and butterflies differ from each other, and even how to hold a butterfly without hurting it. While trying to hold the butterfly, some students were afraid, others enthusiastic and brave. They were very careful not to hurt the butterflies that they were holding. 

Near the butterfly breeding house, at the park’s museum, the Eco Warriors saw hundreds of preserved butterflies. They were amazed that adult butterflies are so wonderfully diverse in shape, size, and colour. In addition to the butterflies, the Eco Warriors also saw other kinds of living insects in the park, including moths, grasshoppers, beetles, tarantulas, and scorpions. Some students took the opportunity to take photos with grasshoppers shaped like leaves and twigs.

At the end of the field trip, the Eco Warriors played a butterfly colouring game. They were asked to colour the butterfly according to the actual colour and motif they observed. In addition to practising the art of drawing, this game also strengthens the student’s memory and accuracy in observing objects. Before returning home, Begawan bought two chrysalises of the Papilio memnon and Idea blanchardi species to be observed and later released at the Learning Centre. The Eco Warriors were very happy to be able to see so many butterflies.

Saatnya untuk kunjungan lapangan!

Sebagai bagian dari program tematik ‘Bees and Butterflies’, pada Minggu 3 April 2022, Pejuang Lingkungan mengunjungi Taman Kupu-Kupu Bali di Kabupaten Tabanan untuk mengamati siklus hidup kupu-kupu. Kegiatan ini memberikan kesempatan kepada para Pejuang Lingkungan untuk melihat, berinteraksi, bahkan menyentuh berbagai kupu-kupu endemik Indonesia yang masih hidup.

Selama kegiatan ini, mereka belajar tentang metamorfosis sempurna kupu-kupu, mengamati langsung bagaimana kepompong berubah menjadi kupu-kupu yang indah, bagaimana ngengat dan kupu-kupu berbeda satu sama lain, bahkan bagaimana cara memegang kupu-kupu tanpa menyakitinya. Saat mencoba memegang kupu-kupu, beberapa siswa takut, yang lain antusias dan berani. Mereka sangat berhati-hati agar tidak melukai kupu-kupu yang mereka pegang.

Di dekat rumah penangkaran kupu-kupu, di museum taman, Pejuang Lingkungan melihat ratusan kupu-kupu yang diawetkan. Mereka kagum bahwa kupu-kupu dewasa sangat beragam dalam bentuk, ukuran, dan warna. Selain kupu-kupu, Pejuang Lingkungan juga melihat jenis serangga hidup lainnya di taman, termasuk ngengat, belalang, kumbang, tarantula, dan kalajengking. Beberapa siswa menyempatkan diri untuk berfoto dengan belalang yang berbentuk seperti daun dan ranting.

Di akhir kunjungan lapangan, Pejuang Lingkungan memainkan permainan mewarnai kupu-kupu. Mereka diminta untuk mewarnai kupu-kupu sesuai dengan warna dan motif yang sebenarnya mereka amati. Selain melatih seni menggambar, permainan ini juga memperkuat daya ingat dan ketelitian siswa dalam mengamati objek. Sebelum pulang, Begawan membeli dua kepompong spesies Papilio memnon dan Idea blanchardi untuk diamati dan kemudian dilepasliarkan di Pusat Belajar. Para Pejuang Lingkungan sangat senang bisa melihat begitu banyak kupu-kupu.
