New Biodiversity Centre in Bali (From Bali With Love)

Indonesia and America launched a biodiversity centre in Bali to research and collect Indonesia's many species, including Indonesia's loved, coral reef formations. 
The $600,000 USD center is funded by USAID and supported by the US Smithsonian Institution Natural Museum, the Indonesian Biodiversity Research Center (IBRC). 
It is located at the Udayana University Biomedic Lab in Denpasar and made up of 60 Indonesian and US Scientists.
The project is a collaboration between 3 of Indonesia's Universities and 2 American Universities, Old Dominion University in Virginia and the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA). 
I mentioned in a previous post that Raja Ampat Islands in Indonesia may be home to the biggest biodiversity in the world with over 600 species living there.
Indonesia is home to many different, unique species and underwater formations. It would be so interesting to see what they discover and collect.
