Flora and Fauna of Bali
Flora and Fauna
of Bali

The wild forests of Bali stretch on the northern western part of the island. The Bali Barat National Park is established to preserve the forests and their wildlife. Here you will find tall tropical trees reaching for the sky, nursing a variety of wild orchids growing on their branches. Pine trees carpet the mountains. Ever protective, waringin trees faithfully stand at the center of every village. Flowers beautifully punctuate little gardens in every house, and most importantly, spread their sweet fragrance into the midnight air to complete the offerings to the gods and goddesses.

Bali tigers (Panthera tigris balica) used to roam these forests, but now you can only find deer or wild boars. Bali Barat National Park has been established as the new habitat for Bali Starling (Jalak Bali), a sweet, white bird that has inspired many a painter.
