Coral Secondary School- Conservation of Bali Starling project and Cultural Immersion Program of Nusa Penida.

Coral Secondary School trip – 1st – 6th June 2014

The program combined cultural and biodiversity projects in the idle island of Nusa Penida, off Bali.

The students were introduced to the conservation program to increase the number of the critically endangered bird, The Bali Starling and they participated and provided artificial nests. The program also introduces cultural and tradition of the inhabitants of this island. They joined in the dance and gamelan practises at the community’s Banjar, the community hall. They also assisted the locals in planting and harvesting seaweed, one of the main source of income for the local and a vanishing trade. One of the highlights of the trip, the students joined in the search of gemstones where locals made beautiful rings and necklaces. It was definitely a lifetime experience for many of the students to experience firsthand the culture and tradition of Balinese culture.DSCF8801 DSCF8808 DSCF8820 DSCF8837 DSCF8838 DSCF8848 DSCF8853 DSCF8857 DSCF8866 DSCF8871 DSCF8874 DSCF8907 DSCF8912
