Sticking Your Neck Out in Bali

The Bali Safari & Marine Park has recently welcomed two giraffes to its substantial collection of more than 60 species and 600 animals.
Hans Manansang, general manager of the Bali Safari & Marine Park, told the National News Agency Antara, “the two giraffes came from Germany and Canada.” He went on to explain that the animals were both approximately two years old and intentionally sourced from two separate locales to encourage a diversified gene pool in keeping with “best practice” for animal conservation.
Hans told the press how that before the animals arrived in Bali the Gianyar facility undertook extensive infrastructure preparations to ensure the new animals would adapt to and enjoy their new home in Bali. “We prepared an enclosure and grounds to create an environment that mirrors their original home,” said Hans.
In keeping with Bali Safari and Marine Park’s award-winning ways in animal conservation, the two giraffes will hopefully prosper and multiply in Bali.
The procedures to import the giraffes to Bali were not overcomplicated as their import is not outlawed or forbidden. “Actually, we have many plans to bring more animals, but at this time the government forbids the important of many animals  due to rabies concern, so we have had to delay such plans,” Hans said.
Explaining further, Hans told how the current ban on the import and export of animals to Bali concerns carnivores and includes lions, tigers, monkeys, dogs and cats.
