Bali's Firefly Garden
Bali's Firefly Garden
Roosegaarde is designing and building the world’s largest firefly garden in Bali. The connected nursery ensures a stable breeding programme to have a healthy swarm of fireflies and collect new scientific knowledge.

When you tell this story to local Balinese they get emotional, since fireflies were everywhere 20 years ago but not anymore.

A firefly wants to have clean air, clean water, clean soil, and no light pollution. So we see them as a gatekeeper for our better future.
