The Pavilion of Animal Specimens in Macao is located in Rua da Cordoaria, Coloane. Being a facility designed for popular science education, it is also the first exhibition pavilion to showcase the animals and natural ecology in Macao. It covers an area of about 460 square metres and has a total of eight themed exhibition rooms, including “Exhibition Room of Introduction to Ecology in Macao”, “Exhibition Room of Rare and Endangered Animals”, “Exhibition Room of Ecosystem of Hills and Low Mountains in Macao”, “Exhibition Room of Wetland Ecosystem in Macao”, “Exhibition Room of Specimens”, “Exhibition Room of Reptiles”, “Exhibition Room of Marine Animals” and “Special Exhibition Room”. In addition, it is equipped with a screening room and a specimen production room. The majority of the animal specimens displayed in the pavilion are wild animals once found locally, including pangolin that can no longer been seen in Macao, as well as the Macao nanhaipotamon crab, a species unique to Macao discovered in 2018. The exhibits witness the historical changes of Macao’s natural ecology, making the pavilion a popular science education venue to understand various kinds of animals and their relationship with the ecological environment.
