WWF Closes Bali Office

Move Reflects New Emphasis on Lobbying Policymakers in Jakarta.

(6/21/2004) After nearly 10 years of operations in Bali, the local office of the World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF) will close on July 1, 2004.

The closure of the Bali office is part of the restructuring of WWF's activities in Indonesia and, according to the Group's Executive Director, does not reflect a lessening of their commitment to national conservation efforts.

WWF's oceans' conservations program now moves to Jakarta from where it will continue to oversee work on Bali projects concerned with the preservation of sea turtles and preservation of the coral reef.

Although Bali remains strategically important to WWF's Indonesian conservation efforts, the organization is now concentrating on lobbying national policymakers by working with the Department of Seas and Fisheries in Jakarta.
