Jean Burling is her name and to us she is affectionately known as “Mama Jean”. She has been traveling to Bali since 1979 and taught swimming and surf life saving skills throughout Indonesia for over 25 years. Mama Jean first came to Bali Garden in early 2000.
Since 2016 she began teaching Agus (Front Desk Supervisor) and the security team in swimming and continues to do so every time she comes back to Bali.

Harnessing the Power of People to Fight Ocean Trash
The International Coastal Cleanup began more than 30 years ago, when communities rallied together with the common goal of collecting and documenting the trash littering their coastline. The movement was catalyzed by the passion and spirit of two committed individuals. Back in 1986, Linda Maraniss moved to Texas from Washington, DC, where she had been working for Ocean Conservancy. She’d been inspired by the work her Ocean Conservancy colleague Kathy O’Hara was doing on a groundbreaking report called Plastics in the Ocean: More than a Litter Problem that would be published the next year.
Linda and Kathy reached out to the Texas General Land Office, local businesses and other dedicated ocean-lovers, and planned what would become Ocean Conservancy’s first Cleanup. They asked volunteers to go beyond picking up trash and record each item collected on a standardized data card in order to identify ways to eliminate ocean trash in the future.
The Cleanup has grown immensely in the 30 years since Linda and Kathy’s first Cleanup. Volunteers from states and territories throughout the U.S. and more than 100 countries come together each year and participate in a Cleanup event near them.
Bali Garden Beach Resort will join this event that held on 21 September 2019 start from 07.00 – onwards along to the Kuta beach until German Beach. Many hotels in Bali also participated in this annual event that will held on the beach close with their hotel.
Bali Sea Turtle Society (BSTS) is an organisation, run by local Indonesians for the conservation of endangered sea turtles. We work across the entire island of Bali with locals in different regions to protect sea turtles.
At the Kuta Beach Sea Turtle Conservation Centre our mission is to protect nesting sea turtles and their eggs to increase hatching and release rates. We also aim to educate people about sea turtle protection, including the protection of natural habitats. Continue reading

We will welcome the 14th Annual Sanur Village Festival 2019. For the Bali and Indonesia tourism calendar, August is the month for Sanur community’s festival.
In its 14th year, Sanur Village Festival will feature the theme Dharmaning Gesing – the glorifying of bamboo, which reflects the Balinese appreciation on bamboo’s role in the daily life. It is used in religious ceremonies and an important element in building architecture, so the festival explores bamboo as part of Sanur community’s spirit of creativity.
