Besi Kalung “Initiative”
Penebel (Bali), April 2011 – The success of FNPF’s Nusa Penida Bird Sanctuary Project has inspired another traditional community group to do similar project in their area. 5 villages and 9 farmer organizations who were under Besikalung Temple territory on the slopes of Batu Karu mountain on Bali, covering an area of + 50Km2, invited FNPF to share the experience and run project at this area. They expected the project could be implemented in their community. FNPF followed up the requests from the people in Besi Kalung by organizing several activities such as community meeting (22 April 2011) and bird release (on 26 April 2011).
There were 9 White Vented Mynah (Achridoteres grandis) and 6 Peaceful dove (Geopelia striata) which released in Besi Kalung.
