As the first-in-Thailand place of its kind, Phuket Butterfly Garden & Insect World was founded by Dr. Prasit Koysiripong in February 1990 under the name "Phuket Butterfly Garden & Insect World"
Besides being created as a place for the public to admire the beautiful and amazing natural creation, the Phuket Butterfly Garden & Insect World was also built as a research centre on butterflies and insects in their natural habitats.
The study is aimed to help bring about greater understanding amongst visitors on the life of butterflies and insects. We hope that you will appreciate and help preserve these wonderful, valuable and fragile creatures.
All butterflies in the "Phuket Butterfly Garden & Insect World" are bred here. We take part in breeding and preserving endangered and rare species.
After the breeding process, a number of butterflies are sent back to nature to help create ecological balance by letting them breed naturally.
