I realise this may be a little weird but what happens to the butterflies when they die in the greenhouse?

We either leave them to decompose in the soil or remove them elsewhere for disposal. Sometimes we’ll keep them for education purposes but unfortunately, due to quarantine procedures, we are not permitted to give them away or send them off our zoo property
