Brief Introduction

Located in Teluk Bahang. Opened in 1986, the Penang Butterfly Farm, is one of Penang’s best known and most popular tourist attractions. The eight-hectare butterfly sanctuary houses an impressively varied collection of butterfly species as well as an assortment of other insects. The farm sits at the foot of the Teluk Bahang hills – between the Taman Rimba Park and Teluk Bahang village. It features more than 4,000 butterflies from more than 120 groups as well as other insects and reptiles.

History

David Goh, the owner, founded the farm to introduce and promote entomology – the study of insects – to the Malaysian public. In order to safeguard the various species of butterflies on the island, this conservation centre is dedicated to protecting them and their habitat. Though most people know the Penang Butterfly Farm to be a tourist attraction, this butterfly ‘safe haven’ has gained an international reputation within the industry. Its other functions include increasing awareness on conservation issues pertaining to the rainforest and butterfly habitats.
