Why need to Participate and Support it?
Up until now, Komodo Island is still competing to achieve the most prestigious title in the world, as one of the new 7 wonders. Komodo Island was nominated for 4th place in the new 7 wonders a few years ago, but currently, its rank has dropped to 12th place. No one ever knows how would the future would be like for Komodo Island. Could it achieve one of the new 7 wonders of the world or no? It all depends on every body’s support. The most important support comes from Indonesian people itself.
The total quantity of that animal currently only around 1900 animals.
You can imagine if this giant lizard species vanished from Indonesia, big possibility it would be just like dinosaurs that have vanished from this earth a long time ago. Our grandchildren will only know its name from ancient history. Those times would be different than our time right now, where we still can see the living Komodo dragon at the national zoo. Komodo national zoo has been established as one of the conservation areas. As recognition for the world for its natural wealth, the National Zoo with a total area of 1,817 km2 has been nominated as the reserves of humans and the biosphere in the year 1986.

Glance about The Komodo Island
Do you want to see komodo lizard closely? Then, come to Komodo National Park, at East Nusa Tenggara island. Over there, we still can see a rare Komodo dragon/giant lizard species. It is a wild kind of animal known with its Latin name as Varanus Komodoensis.
Komodo dragon has been well known as the giant lizard around the world. Komodo has its length around 2 to 3 meters long and the adult Komodo dragon has its total weight around 70 Kg. Even when it has been maintained in captivity, most of the time komodo dragon would have its weight heavier than its usual. According to the record noted that the longest for this wild specimens is 3,13 meter long with a weight of 166 Kg and 10 cm for its length of the claw.
This giant predator animal which lives in Komodo Island, Rinca, Flores, Gili Motang, and Gili Dasami in Nusa Tenggara, has been found by a western researcher in 1910. Unfortunately, this animal habitat with a grim face is threatened with extinction due to human bad behavior.
