The award-winning Bali Safari and Marine Park has come up with a unique and innovative way of dealing with the large quantities of organic waste produced by elephants and other selected animals from among the 400 animals representing over 60 species that call Bali Safari Park home.
A factory situated within the Park, recently inaugurated by the regent of Gianyar, Tjokorda Artha Ardhana Sukawati, processes animal waste into high quality paper products. The hand-made paper is made into a unique range of gifts and souvenirs available for purchase by the public from gift shops at the Park.
Impressed with the new project Tjokorda cited the “Safari Poo Paper” factory as an exciting approach to waste management that should be emulated by the entire world.
The General Manager of the Park, Hans Manansang, heads a “Green Team” at his facility constantly seeking ways to make Bali and his park environmentally sustainable.
In addition to recycling animal dung into paper, the zoo also has a large scale compost processing system providing natural, organic fertilizer that keeps the Bali Safari and Marine Park both clean and green.
