Leafcutter Ants

Discover nature’s farmers and their hidden underground fungus gardens!

Rescued from the wild, the ultimate superorganism is thriving in Cambridge, Ontario – and it’s brilli-ant!

Visit the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory and see the highly ant-icipated leafcutter ant nest, with interconnected chambers, filled with thousands of leafcutter ants with various skills and roles to play.

For the past year, the queen and her loyal workers have been cultivating their garden and growing their colony behind-the-scenes at Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory.

They work cooperatively in a complex society, behaving as a unit. You’ll see them cutting, carrying and marching their way along their foraging trails to tend to their fungus gardens.
