Banteay Srey Butterfly Centre near Siem Reap is home to the largest butterfly centre in Southeast Asia. As well as showcasing the country's abundance of butterfly species, the centre also trains poor local farmers to make extra money by raising butterflies. Lepidopterists - butterfly and moth specialists - will find no shortage of inspiration here at the Banteay Srey Butterfly Centre, 25 kilometres from Siem Reap in northern Cambodia. It was set up in 2009 by two British butterfly enthusiasts, Ben Hayes and Mike Baltzer who had previously set up the Zanzibar Butterfly Centre in Tania, East Africa. (Ap, Siem Reap)
