The goals for Komodo National Park are to protect its
biodiversity (particularly the Komodo dragon) and the breeding stocks of
commercial fishes for replenishment of surrounding fishing grounds. The
main challenge is to reduce both threats to the terrestrial and coastal marine resources and
while avoiding conflicts between stakeholders.
A comprehensive 25 year management plan completed in 2000
provides the basis for adaptive management to regulate all uses in the park and
address threats while maximizing benefits for local communities in a sustainable
way. To learn more about what steps are being taken to conserve Komodo
