inspiring bali activists

Bali is a magical place. These are some of the people who give from their hearts to make a difference in the lives of its people and animals, and to safeguard its environment and culture. They are the heroes of the fight to save the island from being loved to death.

FLYING free: A Brahminy kite is released into ancient forest at Lake Tamblingan, Bali, by Dr Bayu Wirayudha, founder and CEO of Friends of National Parks, Foundation, in September 2014.  It's one of a number of rehabilitated birds that have been released after being seized from smugglers by wildlife rangers from the Indonesian Department of Forestry’s Natural Resources Conservation Agency. A special Hindu ceremony precedes the birds' release. Makes my heart soar.
