This Nature Interpretation Centre (sometimes referred to as Nature Interpretive Centre) or NIC in short, is a three-storey building within Taman Wetland Putrajaya. It is “home” to everything you need to know about wetlands. Everything that can be found at this wetlands park could be found in NIC.

Did you know that this Putrajaya Wetland is the largest man-made wetland in Malaysia? It comprises of 138 hectares of Wetland Park and 197 hectares of wetland area. Similar to natural wetland that is like the planet’s kidney, this man-made one also serves as Putrajaya’s “kidney”. It ensures the suitability of the waters of Putrajaya Lake to be used by humans for recreational activities.
