Raising Community Awareness and Development of Conservation Education for School Children to Support Coral Reef Conservation in Tejakula, Buleleng District, North Bali

The Tejakula reefs sustain a high diversity of reef organisms, which support the livelihoods of coastal people with fisheries or tourism. Threats to the reefs include poor waste management, destructive fishing techniques, and increases in sea temperature, which bleach the corals. A lack of awareness by local stakeholders of the need to conserve coral reefs, has led to a decline in reef health, and a loss of reef species. The project aims to assist coastal communities, local government, youth, school teachers and children in understanding the importance and value of their reefs, and how they can protect them themselves.

Recovering West Bali Tropical Deciduous Forest Ecosystem through Eradicating Invasive Weed and Native Tree Planting Program

West Bali National Park, located in the western part of Bali is the last stronghold for Balinese biodiversity. This lowland forest is home for endemic and critically endangered Bali Starling Leucopsar rothschildi. Despite of its important status, the West Bali National Park has suffered serious problem from invasion of exotic weed Lantana camara, Jatropha gossypifolia and Acacia nilotica which caused decreasing grazing area, inhibiting forest regeneration and inducing forest fire during long dry season. The aims of the project are (1) to control and reduce distribution of invasive weed and enlarge grazing area (2) to improve forest regeneration through planting native tree.
