(10/10/2005)

Bali Bird Park has been certified free of Avian Influenza by the Bali Regional Bureau of Testing and Veterinarian Affairs Office following a thorough review of the facility conducted on Monday, 26 September 2005, under the supervision of a team from Bali's Department of Livestock.

"We had (already) implemented preventive actions over the past few months ever since the issue on Avian Influenza returned to haunt the world's tourism industry with new cases confirmed in China," said Ketut Suasana, General Manager of Bali Bird Park. "I am sure everyone shares our feelings of relief that no cases have been found in Bali in keeping with our continuous commitment to always be vigilant in maintaining high sanitary and hygiene standards," Suasana added.

Since early this year, Bali Bird Park has taken preventative measures including measures against the spread of disease by requiring all visitors to step on disinfectant floor mats and using liquid disinfectant with everyone entering and exiting the park. A bio-security system is also in place supervising the park's extensive collection of birds and close monitoring of all employees' health with tests conducted on a regular basis.

Located on a two-hectare garden site in Singapadu Village, Gianyar Regency, Bali Bird Park is one of several leading natural conservation, recreational and education attractions in Bali, drawing both local and international visitors to view one of the finest collection of birds in the world, including over 1000 birds representing more than 250 species.

Interactive sessions at the Park include twice-a-day Lorry and Pelican bird feeding, "Meet the Bird Stars," and the weekly Komodo Dragon feeding demonstration.

Seen pictured on balidiscovery.com are a pair of rare Bali Starlings or "Jalak Bali." These "Rothschild’s Mynah" are a very rare and critically endangered bird found only in Bali with the Bali Bird Park participating in a captive breeding programs that aims to one day restore a viable population to nature.
