West Bali National Park (Taman Nasional Bali Barat)

West Bali National Park (Taman Nasional Bali Barat) is a conservation area, a forested region which makes up most of central-western Bali, covering over 19,000Ha. Taman Nasional Bali Barat features unique ecosystems which are also the original habitat of the rare Bali Starling (Leucopsar rothschildi). West Bali National Park’s boundary includes open savannahs, dense rainforests, mangrove swamps, and coral reefs, and includes a small island reserve off the north coast of Bali, Pulau Menjangan, which is also referred to as ‘Deer Island’. The park is home to over 300 different species of animals and birds, most particularly the endangered starling.
