Indonesia’s Komodo dragon, the world’s largest lizard, is facing extinction. Global warming, rising sea levels and human activity have shrunk their habitat on the island of Flores, making them genetically weaker and more vulnerable. Established in 2007, the Komodo Survival Programme has developed a multifaceted approach for the conservation of this iconic lizard. They discuss how they will help it survive.

Komodo di Indonesia, kadal terbesar di dunia, menghadapi kepunahan. Pemanasan global, naiknya permukaan air laut dan aktivitas manusia telah menyusutkan habitat mereka di Pulau Flores, membuat mereka secara genetik lebih lemah dan lebih rentan. Didirikan pada tahun 2007, Program Kelangsungan Hidup Komodo telah mengembangkan pendekatan multifaset untuk konservasi kadal ikonik ini. Mereka mendiskusikan bagaimana mereka akan membantunya bertahan.
