About
For the first time in 30 years, we are sincerely appealing for your help to tie us through the crisis as we made available our precious butterfly chrysalis for adoption, each of them was carefully raised from the moment they hatched from their tiny eggs. Each of them tells the story of dedicated farmers and staff throughout the metamorphosis. This is the only way we can ensure butterflies continue to fly … Pandemic Covid19 had brought about the most disheartening moment here. Our team was torn apart by strict Movement Control Order (MCO) imposed by Malaysian government since 18th March, 2020. Many of our laboratory staffs were locked down at home incapacitating them from rendering their care on thousands of larvae within the laboratories. As the nation embroiled in serious battles with Covid19, the Sanctuary’s only source of income was lost. With negative income and staff reduced to skeleton workforce, operation within laboratories is paralyzed.

This is one of our favorite places to visit in Melaka - highly recommended especially if you have kids . Pre-Covid we would make annual trips here and it has never disappointed. We went back this past week after a long hiatus and were pleasantly surprised at the improvements made, specifically opportunities for kids to interact with the animals via feeding packs sold along with the admission tickets. There were fewer species of butterflies this time around, likely as a result of the pandemic lockdown, but the animals otherwise looked healthy and well cared for. I am always impressed at how clean the enclosures are- never a smell, even after a night of heavy rainfall.

And incredible enchanting journey thru nature flora and fauna in a harmonious habitat. Is suitable for adults and children as the paths are well situated. Its also nice that there is so much interaction allowed among visitors with the wildlife and insects. Good that visitors get to see insects and amphibians that are not local too.

Nice place to see various reptiles (from Malaysian but not only), including local endangered crocodiles (they have a reproduction program for them). Various butterfies (some have damaged wings because they are in areas that are sometimes screened) and insects. At the begining of the visit, the staff can show you some local geant insects from Malaysian, which can be manipulated.

I came with my friends and it was a fun visit. We enjoy the nature and if visitors/customers came in during weekend, one could have the chances to enjoy more as they would have the opportunity to feed the reptiles.

Staff is very friendly, environment and cleanness very good.
Some places is quite slippery, should have take some action, with the price ticket.... I would expected more not stuffy, because the day we visit is not hot sunny day, but still we are sweating like crazy....

Should also suggested more senior citizen friendly, and have some family combo ticket price.

Thank you, have a nice day.
