A Balinese Path to Honor and Balance * Bali Safari & Marine Park Wins Highest Honors at 2016 Tri Hita Karana Awards

      BALI Safari & Marine Park has demonstrated its singularity and leadership in Bali’s tourism industry once again by winning “Platinum” honors in the prestigious Tri Hita Karana Tourism Awards for 2016.

     Awarded annually to deserving members of Balinese society since the year 2000 by the Tri Hita Karana Foundation, the awards - depending on the selection committee’s evaluation, are given Bronze, Silver and Gold trophies. Recipients who win an award for three consecutive years are presented Emerald Awards. And, in turn, Emerald Award winners who win honor for three years in a row are presented with the highest accolade - a Platinum Award.

     The name sake and underlying inspiration for the award program is the Bali-Hindu philosophy of Tri Hita Karana that mandates harmony and balance be maintained through careful attention to the connections shared between man and God, man and nature, and man and society.

     Winning it’s first Silver Award in 2011, Bali Safari and Marine Park has continually striven to improve by enriching the environment shared by the hundreds of animals representing more than 60 species found at the Park and, in the process, securing higher recognition year-after-year from the Tri Hita Karana Foundation.

     Accepting the 2016 award citation, William Santoso, General Manager of the Bali Safari & Marine Park, said: “That Bali Safari and Marine Park has again won a coveted Platinum Ward underlines the Park’s desire to be both an integral and integrated part of Balinese society and its large tourism industry. Sustainability and structuring a successful balance between the impact of man’s presence on the planet and the nature as a whole is at the very core of Bali Safari & Marine Park’s educational message, a message we share with visitors, especially the thousands of school-age children, who come to our park each year. That the Park has once again been honored with the highest possible Tri Hita Karana award category serves as a reminder of our shared mission to help make Bali an environmentally sustainable Island, while, at the same time, serving as an incentive to remain motivated in our mission to make Bali a green destination.” *BTNewspaper/balidiscovery.com
