In 1991, Komodo National Park was declared as UNESCO World Heritage Site. The park includes the three larger islands: Komodo, Padar, and Rinca. Komodo National Park is the only home of the famous giant lizard, Komodo dragon. Their unusually large size draws interest of many scientists to study about the theory of evolution.
Komodo National Park offers a dramatic landscape between the dry savannah vegetation, green rugged hillsides, and white sandy beaches in contrast with the clear blue sea water. Utterly breathtaking panorama.
Komodo National Park’s fauna is quite a contrast between the terrestrial and marine fauna. The terrestrial fauna is not as rich as its marine life. Komodo National Park hosts a great number of species under its sea, such as shark, manta ray, turtle, whale, dolphin, eagle rays, pygmy seahorse, false pipefish, clown frogfish, nudibranchs, blue-ringed octopus, sponges, tunicates and many more.
