"mass tourism and the smuggling hurt the world's largest living lizard, the komodo dragon of indonesia, living in a group of islands in Indonesia. Now the country will temporarily shut down the island of Komodo, one of the most popular turistöar where the lizard is, in an attempt to protect the big animals."

"– mass tourism on Komodo is very disturbing to the lizard. When it comes to many tourists to a sensitive area like the Komodo so affected lizards negatively, " says Marius Ardu Jelamu, head of the local tourist office."

"Every year arrive thousands of tourists to the small islands in eastern Indonesia, which is the only place in the world where the lizard can be seen in their natural environment. The increase in the smuggling of the lizards is another reason that the island is now proposed to close."

"to protect the lizard from the smugglers, the security shall on the island to be tightened," says Ardu Jelamu."

"If the proposal is approved by the government, it will enter into force in 2020."

"the komodo dragon of indonesia is classified as vulnerable. There are a total of approximately 5 000 individuals, of which 2 300 on the island of Komodo. Varanen can be over three metres long and weigh close to 150 pounds."
