Nusa Penida Historical Research
Named after Lionel Walter Rothschild (1868-1937), the Bali Starling (Leucopsar rothschildi) - Bali's fabled mascot, almost at the brink of extinction - found a new home on Nusa Penida in 2006. The discovery of this cheerful and sympathetic bird's new habitat was the start of research into Nusa Penida in 2007, resulting in this website: historical research on the island group of Nusa Penida (Nusa Gede, Nusa Ceningan & Nusa Lembongan), sibling to mainland Bali, Indonesia, decidated to Balinese historian Njoman Djelada (Gora Sirikan).
This website, celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2017, is best viewed on a desktop computer.
