Indonesia Cancels Planned Closure of Komodo Island

Komodo National Park in Indonesia is the only place in the world where Komodo dragons can be seen in their natural habitat. Every month it is visited by 10,000 tourists.

Starting in 2020, Komodo island was supposed to close down for tourists in order to preserve the giant lizards from the negative effects of mass tourism. However, this decision was badly received by the tourism sector and would have required the movement of several thousand inhabitants. Instead, the authorities will limit the number of tourists and raise fees to better protect wildlife.
