Improve the management of the small population of Komodo dragons (Varanus komodoensis) found on the Indonesian island of Flores, a Key Biodiversity Area. This small population to the east of the island of Komodo is not well understood and is vulnerable due to human-wildlife conflict. The project will study the population, work with local communities to alleviate conflict and build the capacity of the natural resources management authority.

Strategic Direction: 2 Improve management of sites (KBAs) with and without official protection status
