Dolphin is a Mammalia that live in the sea which means they are not categorized as ordinary fish. Instead of having eggs for reproduction, they are giving birth to dolphin child like us so they are categorized as a Mammalia. They are always jumping on the sea water level during the sunrise time because they feel it is not too hot yet to hunt the smaller fish as food around top water level. Usually the live with large number of groups so once you see one Dolphins, you will see plenty of them around you.

UNESCO Rice Terrace
Jatiluwih Rice Terrace is a wide range area of rice field in Jatiluwih Village, Tabanan Regency with unique landscape and watering system. The mountainous area in small island of Bali is giving a problem for the farmer to find a wide and large area of flat land in order to plant the rice but in the other hand Balinese people are eating rice as the main food. So to have enough rice supply for the locals, we found a farming technology that flattened small area of the mountain then shaped it into several different levels so it will shaped in terrace landscape. The watering system will be flow from the top level of the rice terrace and spread into the next level underneath.
Instead of flattened the mountain into a wide flat area, this option is more realistic and more ecosystem friendly since we are not changing the shape of the mountain itself. This farming system is exist in our land from hundred years ago. Even it exist before the colony from Europe start their invasion in our country. In Bali, this rice terrace irrigation system is popular as “Subak”. Due to its unique irrigation system, Jatiluwih Rice Terrace has award as the UNESCO’s World Cultural Heritage on 2012.
