Is a Penang Butterfly farm visit during my trip back to Penang. We went there to snap the beauty of butterflies. Comparable, I prefer Penang Butterfly Farm as we can see more species of Butterfly there compare to in KL.
Penang Butterfly Farm is more than just a tourist destination. It is set up as a ‘live museum’ to educate the public as well as an educational and research centre for butterfly and insect.
Today, the Butterfly Industry, once known as a tourism industry is slowly shifting it’s aim towards education with the intension of educating the public, both the old and the young where they will be exposed to the life cycle of butterflies and knowledge on other insects which effectively leads to motivation of awareness of particularly the very fragile aspect of nature. This is where the role of Penang Butterfly Farm comes in.
Today, they house an average population of 4,000 Malaysian butterflies of 120 species, along with other insects and small animals. They pride themselves in being a living museum to educate the public as well as a conservation and research centre to develop breeding methods.
