KTNP “Dancing with Butterflies on Sheding”



The Sheding Nature Park in Kenting National Park (KTNP) is a high coral reef mixing with grass-covered land, coral reef rift valleys, and limestone caves containing rich nectariferous plants to feed adult butterflies and lush edible grass for larvae. Therefore, about 216 types of butterflies have been recorded in the park which becomes one of the most important landscape resources of KTNP.

For the public to understand more about the butterfly ecology in KTNP and identify commonly seen butterflies, Kenting National Park Headquarters will organize the “Dancing with Butterflies on Sheding” activity at 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on 30 July 2017.


In the activity, tour guides of Shending Community will take participants to understand the ecology of the butterfly. With their guidance, you will find that nature is fun and very challenging. Let us begin with the encounter with beauty.
