Adopt Our Butterfly 

HELP the farmers


Penularan pandemik Covid19 telah menjadikan situasi yang amat menyedihkan di sini. Pasukan kami musnah kesan dari Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan (PKP) yang ketat, yang dikuatkuasakan oleh kerajaan sejak 18 Mac 2020 lalu. Ini adalah langkah yang perlu diambil untuk memutuskan rantaian wabak yang menakutkan dan telah meragut banyak nyawa di seluruh dunia.


Sebilangan besar kakitangan makmal kami perlu meminimakan pergerakan dan kekal berada di rumah sehingga mereka tidak mampu menguruskan ribuan ulat beluncas di dalam makmal. Ketika negara terlibat dalam pertempuran serius dengan Covid19, satu-satunya sumber pendapatan santuari ini telah pun hilang. Kesannya sangat dahsyat terutama dalam jangka masa panjang kerana langkah penjarakan sosial akan terus mempengaruhi pemulihan industri pelancongan di Malaysia meskipun setelah PKP tamat.


Dengan sumber pendapatan yang negatif dan kakitangan yang dikurangkan menjadikan hanya tenaga kerja utama sahaja yang tinggal, operasi di dalam makmal lumpuh. Telur rama-rama dibiarkan tidak berpungut. Tanaman pokok perumah kering dengan cepat, mengakibatkan daun-daun yang tidak mencukupi untuk diberi makan kepada populasi ulat beluncas rama-rama yang ada. Ketika keadaan kian memburuk dan mengerikan, keputusan yang menyakitkan dan meruntun emosi terpaksa dibuat, menjadi hari yang paling suram di santuari ini sepanjang 30 tahun beroperasi – kira-kira 3000 ulat beluncas rama-rama yang sihat telah dilupuskan. Itu benar-benar hari yang sangat berat, air mata kami bergenangan. Menyedihkan, menyakitkan … tiada kata-kata dapat menggambarkan kesedihan kami.


Anda boleh membantu rama-rama di sini... 

Untuk pertama kalinya dalam 29 tahun, kami dengan tulus meminta bantuan anda semua untuk membantu kami menghadapi krisis ini. Kami menyediakan kepompong rama-rama yang berharga untuk diadopsi (di sini), masing-masing dibiakkan dengan teliti dari saat mula menetas daripada telur kecil mereka. Setiap dari mereka menceritakan kisah para petani dan kakitangan yang berdedikasi melalui metamorfosis. Ini adalah satu-satunya cara untuk memastikan rama-rama terus terbang …

Pandemic Covid19

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. It was a necessary move to break the chain of this uncaring, relentless and frightening pandemic which had taken many lives all around the world. 


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. The impact is devastating and far reaching as social distancing measures will continue the bite on the recovery of tourism industry within Malaysia long after MCO is lifted. 


With negative income and staff reduced to skeleton workforce, operation within laboratories is paralyzed. Butterfly eggs were left uncollected. Host plants were drying up fast producing insufficient leafs to feed the on-going population of butterfly larvae. As situation deteriorated and became increasingly dire, an excruciating and emotional decision was made which marked the darkest day of the Sanctuary in its 30 years of operation – an estimated 3,000 butterfly larvae were euthanized. It was all sombre atmosphere, tears filled our eyes. Painful, agonizing … words could not express our sorrow. 


Here's how you can help with butterfly farming...

For the first time in 29 years, we are sincerely appealing for your help to tie us through the crisis as we made available our precious butterfly chrysalis for adoption (click here), 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 …
