Introduction of the Organization

The National Institute of Ecology (NIE) is a facility for ecological research, exhibitions, and education, allowing visitors to learn about five major climate types?tropical, desert, mediterranean, temperate and polar?as well as the ecology of the Korean Peninsula.
