The Butterfly Enthusiast is an explorer exclusive perk. Each time an expedition collects a butterfly, it will regain 20 sanity.

The only way to obtain this perk is to play as Charles Darwin, who begins the game with it.

Benefit Edit

Additional bonus when cathing butterflies. Gives more incentive to seek them out since a butterfly collection can also benefit your fame and funds.

Tips Edit

The sanity gain is relatively small, while butterflies are region-sensitive (they are very rare in dry regions and don't show at all in deserts) and relatively rare - collecting ten butterflies during entire playthrough is an achievement all by itself. Thus the perk is best used as simple additional potential, and not a main source of sanity for any expedition.
