Enjoy this wonderfully written and beautiful pictures book of The Langkawi Geopark .
Langkawi Geopark is Malaysia’s and Southeast Asia’s first established geopark located in the far northwestern corner of Peninsular Malaysia, adjacent to the Thai border.
Langkawi Geopark possesses many geoheritage sites of national and regional significant that should be conserved for purposes of public education and future research. Most of these geoheritage sites are complementing to the islands’ best and complete evidence of Palaeozoic geological records. Others are mostly related to the beautiful formation of tropical island karst landscape, inaugurally one of the best of its kind in the world. Most of these geoheritage sites are conserved along with other nature conservation entity namely geoforest park, a concept that was first introduced in Langkawi. Other geoheritage sites are conserved under the geological monuments and protected geosites.
Written and researched by Dr. Katsutoshi Kato and Selvam Raman.
We took quite some time to compile this book, a decade to be exact.
The book contains more than 300 good-quality coloured photos and general information with regards to Langkawi’s butterflies.
Most of the information is based on butterflies that could be found around Langkawi. An added point is the fact that the book is bilingual, using both the English and Japanese languages.
We have plans to continue our research for the next 5 years, with more efforts being concentrated on the island, since no one else has yet to pioneer the project. We might have a lot more unrecorded butterflies waiting to be discovered on the island and maybe we might find new species that will put this island on the tourism and scientific map.
You may purchase this book at RM 350 excluding delivery charges, which will be subjected to the country of delivery and calculated into the final receipt.
