Abstract
One of the Provinces in Indonesia which has its own island and is famous for its special customs is the Province of Bali. Not only are their customs unique, Bali also has abundant natural wealth. One type of natural wealth is Mangrove Forest which is one of the largest mangrove forests in Indonesia as a supporting ecosystem. The Balinese customary law community has the philosophy of Tri Hita Karana as the basis of their reference to protect and manage natural wealth. The focus of this research is to find out how Balinese indigenous people protect mangrove forests in Bali Province in accordance with Balinese customs with the philosophy of Tri Hita Karana so that they can be used as an example for involving local communities to help protecting mangrove ecosystems in other areas. The Balinese customary law community has Awig- awig which is based on Tri Hita Karana as a foundation for indigenous people to act including in protecting mangroves. Not only is the law and the Provincial Government of Bali playing a role in protecting Mangroves, but also the surrounding community plays a full role in the presence of Pecalang and the activities of local Fishermen to protect Mangrove Forests.
