3. Walhi Environmental NGO Criticizes Plans to Build the Jurassic Park on Island Inhabited by Komodo Dragons

The Walhi environmental NGO has joined a chorus of individulas and groups criticizing the government’s planned Jurassic Park project on East Nusa Tenggara province’s Rinca Island, one of the last habitats of the Komodo dragon.

“[The Jurassic Park project] has no scientific basis. Far from its developer’s claim of its sustainability, the project might spell the beginning of the Komodo dragons’ extinction,” warned Walhi Executive Director Nur Hidayati.

“The project also runs counter to the local people’s folk wisdom and might even displace them in their own land.” Aside from Walhi, entertainer Melanie Subono and the People’s Forum to Save Tourism in West Manggarai or Formapp NGO also rejected the Jurassic Park project.

The Ministry of Environment and Forestry denied that the Jurassic Park is unsustainable. The project is thought to be 30 percent complete and is expected to be complete by June 2021.
