(9/1/2008)

Although not from Bali, he is a man who feels a tremendous love of Balinese culture. Drs. Jansen Manansang recently told the Jawa Post that his heart ached following two bombing attacks on Bali in 2002 and 2005. And, while many business people closed their businesses in response to those attacks, he swam against the current investing heavily to open the Bali Safari and Marine Park in the Gianyar district of Bali.

Building the massive nature park in the uncertain times of a Balinese economy struggling to regain its footing, Jansen, who is a Director of Taman Safari Indonesia, stayed the course, determined to help the Island he loved rebuild. "We built the Bali Safari and Marine Park in Gianyar not just to bring tourists to Bali, but we also wanted to help develop a vibrant local economy," explained the man who now employs more than 400 people at his Bali Park.

In recognition of his wildlife parks in West Java, East Java and Bali and his continuing commitment to the Republic, Jansen Manansang was singled out for national honors, receiving the prestigious Bintang Jasa Utama presented by President Yudhoyono on August 14, 2008 in Jakarta.

Manansang and his extended family's commitment to the environment and to endangered species has prompted them to establish the Bali Safari and Marine Park where he is now starting a breeding program for the highly endangered Bali Starling.

Praised and acknowledged for his expertise by his colleagues working internationally in the zoo sector, Jansen now serves as the President of the Southeast Asia Zoo Association. In charge of three zoos, heading a regional professional association and now the recipient of national honors – Jansen Manansang is not content to rest on his laurels. Determined to make Bali the tourism gateway of Indonesia, he has announced his intention to host an Asia-wide zoo conference in Bali in 2009.
