Pastika unveils Internet, releases rare birds on remote island

Nusa Penida, an isolated island off Bali’s east coast, was connected with modern technology for the first time.

Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika unveiled solar panels and an Internet-ready computer to get the island online. The solar panels and computer are housed in the Toya Pakeh community hall, making Internet access available to all. The endangered Bali Starling is the province’s emblem; a local foundation, Friends of the National Parks Foundation, has been working with Nusa Penida residents over the past five years to develop the island to become a bird sanctuary and offer the birds a safe habitat.
