Welcome to Beautiful Bali Bali is a beautiful island with a tropical deciduous forest climate, also known as a rainforest. It has dense jungles with warm wet weather. The temperature stays around 80 degrees Fahrenheit for the whole year. Rainfall is heavy, with about 100 centimeters of annual rainfall. The apex predator of Bali is the Komodo dragon, a fearless predator much like the honey badger.
Natural Wildlife The wax ginger flower, which can be eaten, and several different species of orchid can be found here. The wattled brush turkey, molluccan scrubfowl, and southern cassowary are herbivores that eat the lucious plants of the island. The orangutan, common spotted cuscus, and Asian elephant are also herbivores that eat fruits and other plants from the jungle.
Natural Wildlife The malaria virus has been found on Bali. The parasite has a symbiotic relationship with the host. The Sumatran tiger and the Komodo dragon are both endangered species in Bali. Their habitats have been threatened by humans and their numbers have been declining rapidly. The komodo dragon’s niche is to be the apex predator and consume the final energy in the environment. The Asian elephant’s niche is to clear dense forest and allow regrowth.
Human Impact Unfortunately, humans have caused massive deforestation on Bali. Much of the precious rain forest has been destroyed, but that does not mean Bali is any less beautiful. Many people still love to visit the island regualarly.
Fun on Bali! Bali has beautiful beaches that you can visit. There is also kayaking and ziplining through the jungle. Thousands of people come to this island every year for the countless activities. You should consider packing short sleeves with bathing suits in order to enjoy our island!
Warning In addition to the high adventures and wild thrills of Bali, tourists have reported dangers such as racing heart, increased adrenaline, need to try new things, increased risk taking, desire to perform stunts, dislike of home, and increased chance of having the time of their lives.
