Massachusetts Butterfly Club
2021 Spring Meeting
The Spring meeting of the Massachusetts Butterfly Club was held on Saturday, April 10th.
Sixty-two enthusiasts attended via Zoom.
Phil Torres is an entomologist, science communicator, and television host whose career all began with dreams of adventures with butterflies around the world. With an entomology degree from Cornell University and two years of living in the Amazon Rainforest, his career in research turned into a career in outreach, photography, documentaries and eventually, television. From being an international science journalist reporting from places like the Arctic and 11,000 feet below (in a submarine), he now hosts The Jungle Diaries on YouTube and Expedition X on the Discovery Channel. His love of nature, butterflies, and conservation has landed him in commercials with brands like Intel and Tommy Hilfiger and his research has been featured everywhere from BBC to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Phil also guides science adventure trips to the Amazon, Galapagos, and the monarch migration site in Mexico. Learn more about him at www.phil-torres.com.
