Komodo Dragons is a scarce animal which you can still see nowadays only in Komodo National Park. It less than 2500 population which can reach more than three meters in length and weigh as much as 90 kilograms living free in the Park's dramatic landscape involves the rugged hillside of dry savannah, pockets of monsoon forest, white sandy beaches and sparkling blue water with beautiful underwater world. Komodo dragon is an animal breeding by laying eggs and each komodo can lay eggs until 30 pieces. It brood its egg until 9 months in its nest which is made under ground until its baby can bear . It makes several holes around it nest to camouflage from other predators. Komodo is one of the dangerous predators can eat each other including their babies. The most population can be found in Rinca Island rather than Komodo Island it self.

THE THREATS
Komodo National Park is dwelt by many species wild animals from both land and sea which are now still protected. It was originally to conserve the Komodo dragon which the conservation goals have since expanded to protect the Park's entire biodiversity. The animals are protected in this park from the land like Komodo dragon, bat, Megapod Bird, Monkey, Cockatoo, water buffalo, deer, horse, other birds and from the sea like Manta Ray, Cetacea, Shark, Turtle, other fish and coral. Therefore illegal hunting, fishing or any king of animal catching efforts are strongly not permitted to keep the continuity of the park's life.

Meanwhile the threats to the parks are not limited only to the sea, poaching or illegal hunting and gathering of wildlife such as turtle eggs, Timor deer, fruit bats and addible (swift let) birth nests – also continues and can have far reaching consequences. We take the example of Timor deer that they are well protected as a vital source of food to Komodo dragon and it is estimated that for every deer poached, there will be one less yearly meal for each adult dragon. The impact on the Park does not stop there; poacher will often set fire to grassland to flush out deer, which can cause extensive dead and damage to plants and animals in the park including the Komodo dragons.

Since 2001, the local government established a Park zoning system to give more control access and use within all marine and terrestrial area of the Park. This zone system is well protecting the from the poaching and keep the continuity of the park's life.
