Komodo National Park

Funding Opportunity

Location Summary

Komodo National Park, encompassing a group of islands at the center of the Indonesian archipelago, became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1991 (read more here). The park is renowned for being the habitat of the iconic "Komodo Dragon," the last surviving species of large lizards native to the region. It also boasts diverse coral reefs and marine megafauna, including the blue whale and ten species of dolphins in its marine zone.

M2 would expand the capacity of park rangers, helping identify and document wildlife poachers, particularly at night when radar would reveal their unauthorized entries into the park. M2 partner, Global Conservation, details current conservation efforts and outlines the specific need for support for Komodo National Park in a recently published report.
