About the Asian Lepidoptera Conservation Symposium
Asian Lepidoptera Conservation Symposium (ALCS) is an iniative by Kadoorie Farm & Botanic Garden aimed at assessing the current conservation status, then identifying and creating a framework for Lepidoptera conservation in the South East Asian Region with a practical series of presentations and workshops, as there wasn't an integrated approach towards the conservation of butterflies and moths in the South East Asian Region.
The First Asian Lepidoptera Conservation Symposium was previously the South East Asian Lepidoptera Conservation Symposium and was held in Hong Kong from 4th to 8th September, 2006. During the 1st symposium, Penang Butterfly Farm was nominated by Kadoorie Farm & Botanic Garden and was finally given the opportunity to host the 2nd symposium which will now be held on 24 - 28 November 2008 in Penang, Malaysia.
