Eco Museum

The Forest City Eco-Museum is an important platform that provides people with more knowledge and understanding of the ecology, flora and fauna, and the human ecosystem in the area. Forest City is geographically well-positioned, blessed with abundant natural resources and a vibrant ecological environment, providing a solid foundation for biodiversity conservation and ecosystem protection.

Forest City is surrounded by various unique marine ecosystems, including mangrove forests, seagrass beds, and coral reefs. Particularly noteworthy are the seagrass beds, which are one of the unique ecosystems in the sundial zone. Different species of seagrass exist around Forest City’s waters. These seagrass beds not only serve as habitats for numerous marine organisms but also play a crucial role in maintaining the balance and stability of the entire ecosystem. Within these seagrass beds, you can find various marine creatures such as sea cucumbers, shells, soft corals, and clams, all coexisting to create a diverse marine ecosystem.

The Forest City Eco-Museum logo is similar to Forest City’s logo, but the two leaves above and below are replaced by marine creatures and a mermaid, symbolizing the protection of marine ecology and the achievement of harmony between humans and nature. The Forest City Eco-Museum serves as the urban cultural totem of Forest City and a knowledge exchange platform, hosting temporary and permanent exhibitions. Here, you will see specimens contributed by the UMT, including marine creatures found in the surrounding area of Forest City.

In recent years, Forest City has collaborated closely with various academic institutions and environmental NGOs, including the Malaysian Nature Society and University Putra Malaysia (UPM). Through these collaborations, not only has Forest City strengthened its environmental conservation efforts but also fostered knowledge and experience exchange. Additionally, Forest City has initiated a program called “Go Green,” which aims to promote environmental protection and sustainable development by connecting residents, local communities, NGOs, and nearby schools. This program not only raises environmental awareness in the community but also creates a better and more sustainable future for Forest City.

The Eco-Museum features a special marine-mangrove ecosystem tank that uses a saltwater system to simulate the marine-mangrove ecosystem around Forest City. Currently under establishment, the ecosystem tank will gradually introduce more organisms in phases. Once completed, the tank will house over 30 different organisms, including small fishes, shrimps, crabs, starfish, and more. This will provide visitors with an ultimate viewing experience, allowing them to observe the activities of these organisms and the functioning of the ecosystem up close. Additionally, the Eco-Museum offers professional guided tours to provide visitors with a deeper understanding of the importance of and conservation efforts in the mangrove marine ecosystem.


The Forest City Eco-Museum is a very important place that serves not only as a platform for knowledge exchange but also as a place for people to gain a deep understanding of the human ecosystem in the area. Here, you can discover a wealth of knowledge about marine ecology and experience the importance of urban-nature harmony.

This tank uses a saltwater system to simulate the mangrove marine ecosystem, allowing people to gain a deeper understanding of this ecosystem. The saltwater simulates the marine environment, while the mangrove plants are planted around the tank to simulate the mangrove forest in Forest City. This simulated system provides a visual experience and allows people to learn about the mangrove ecosystem. Observing and studying this system can help better understand the functioning, biodiversity, and ecological interactions of the mangrove ecosystem.

The tank will house over 30 different organisms, including small fishes, shrimps, crabs, starfish, and more, creating a diverse and rich ecosystem. Each organism has unique characteristics and behaviors, allowing viewers to appreciate different biological activities. These organisms contribute to maintaining the ecological balance of the tank and provide a suitable habitat. Visitors can enjoy the beauty and diversity of the organisms in this tank while learning about their characteristics and the functioning of the ecosystem.
