Maintaining Balance on a Crowded Planet

World Environment Day at Bali Safari and Marine Park

Planet Earth celebrated World Environment Day on June 5, 2015 seeking, as it does each year on that date, to enhance global awareness of the need for positive action behalf of the environment.  To mark the occasion, the Bali Safari & Marine Park invited children from a local orphanage to visit their 40-hectare complex that is home to more than 60 species of animals in order to obtain an understanding of the importance of protecting the Earth by adopting a green lifestyle.

On World Environment Day 2015 the Bali Safari and Marine Park targeted the coming generation that will play a key role in the conservation and sustainability. Children hosted by the Park were invited to participate in the care and feeding of tame animals – such as goats and ponies, in the Petting Zoo where they also heard presentations on how mankind can best care for the animal kingdom. A number of Safari Rangers led the children and other visitors to the Park on animal encounters with wild species – such as snakes and iguanas. The children were also entertained by a visit to the Bali Safari and Marine Park’s unique Poo Paper Workshop where “recycled” products are produced from elephant manure.

The Park designed all these activities in the hope that children can be persuaded to form closer relationships with the animal kingdom and, as a result, develop a genuine concern for environmental conservation. The coming generation holds the key to creating a more sustainable world. It is therefore vitally important that we share with today’s youth awareness and genuine affection for the natural world in order to foster a more responsible attitude in how we interact with the natural environment.

Commenting on World Environment Day, William Santoso, general manager of the Bali Safari and Marine Park, said: “As a leading conservation center for wild animal species, care for the natural environment is a chief concern of everyone at the Park. The Earth is not the exclusive home of mankind, but must be shared with all living things. By commemorating World Environment Day we hope that people, both in Bali and the rest of the world, can acquire an understanding of the need for good stewardship in how imperative it is that we protect and preserve the Earth for generations to come. This all-important job begins with sharing with the children who visit the Park simple ways in how to keep clean their surrounding environment and the careful and responsible use of our natural resource.”

About World Environment Day

Organized by the United Nations, World Environment Day encourages worldwide awareness and action for the environment. Stakeholders in more than 100 countries create opportunities for the public to do something positive for the environment as part of a collective power that generates an exponential positive impact on the planet.

World Environment Day’s theme for 2015 is: "Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care." Concerned that people are consuming natural resource in a non-sustainable manner, the day is dedicated to promoting the well being of humanity, the environment and the functioning of the economy – all of which depend on the responsible management of the Earth’s natural resources.
