Natural History Tours Sdn Bhd is pleased to organize our very first Langkawi Nature Festival 2012.

With an impressive count of over 500 species of butterflies not easily encountered on the Peninsular, the butterflies to look out for in Langkawi will be the exquisite Green Banded Peacock, cryptic Oak Blues, Crows and Tigers and other winged jewels anticipating your presence! An added bonus would be if new records or species are discovered along the way for both birds and butterflies.
LNF’s aim is to develop a bird & butterfly list of Langkawi Island over a 28 hour field trip that will be named the Big Bird and Butterfly Count. Amongst other activities that are set to take place are an Eco Walk for Nature at Gunung Raya , Nature Workshops and Talks by renowned naturalists, scientists and photographers as well as a Nature Trade & Exhibition Fair for exhibitions and merchandise sale.
LNF 2012 is set to be an outing for Langkawian families, friends, travelers and visitors alike with a difference!
