Jesica Helena, Operational Manager of Taman Safari Bali, expressed her excitement, saying, “We at Taman Safari Bali are delighted to host this event, reflecting our commitment to environmental conservation and our role as a conservation center. This activity is a concrete step in preserving and conserving the surrounding environment, especially coastal habitats that are home to various marine life, including turtles.”

Bali is always known for its serene beaches and stunning panoramas that attract many global tourists. However, these beaches are threatened by increasing litter, debris, and contaminants along the coastline. If left unchecked, Bali’s beautiful beaches will gradually degrade, losing their integrity as Bali’s icons. Taman Safari Bali’s beach cleaning activities involve the removal of trash and debris from the shoreline, aiming to create a cleaner and safer environment for marine life and beach visitors.
