Entopia – Penang Butterfly Farm

The wish to promote and introduce entomology to the people of Malaysia was what got David Goh started in 1986. The 8-hectare farm is a conservation centre and is dedicated to protect the butterflies and their habitat. It has since become a popular tourist attraction in Penang.

The “Living Museum” in the farm houses a variety of exotic butterfly species which includes the Rajah Brooke and also the rare Yellow Bird Wing butterfly.
