Penang Butterfly Farm
The Penang Butterfly Farm is one of the tourist attractions in Teluk Bahang. Covering over 120 different species of butterflies as well as an array of unique ancient artifacts, this is the place to be if one is in the area.
In 1986 March, The Penang Butterfly Farm, presumably the 1st butterfly house in the Tropical Region, was opened to the public.
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.
