SDIT Al Falah Yukum Jaya visited Gita Persada Butterfly Park. The students are excited in touching and inspecting the butterfly caterpillar. Pak Muin and the other teachers and the students learned how to do a simple butterfly conservation project.
Last month, on 18 April 2011, we had visitors from Sekolah Menengah Alam Lampung.
After we explained about the Butterfly Park and the butterflies, we took them for a little trekking around the park.
The students could see how the habitat provided supporting butterflies life. They took notes and asked lots of question. We were hoping that they would start conservate butterfly in their home.
Gita Persada Butterfly Park has built a new tree house. This tree house attached on a big candle nut tree. Made from bamboo, this tree house will be the new addition for the eco-tourism package in lampung. We plan to build some more of these tree houses in the next two years to accommodate more tourists.
Gita Persada crew visited Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park. We spent a couple days in there. We where hosted by WWF (World Wildlife Fund) in RPU Rhino Camp. We where there to initiate a butterfly conservation project outside the national park and also initiate an ecotourism routes in lampung which include the national park and Gita Persada Butterfly Park. This routes will provide a seamless lampung ecotourism package.
