TRIBUNBATAM.id, EAST NUSA TENGGARA -- Starting August 1, 2022, the Regional Government of East Nusa Tenggara (NTT) and the Komodo National Park Office (BTNK) plan to set the cost to the Komodo National Park conservation area, to IDR 3.75 million per person for a period of one year. 

"Taking into account the cost of conservation, IDR 3.75 million per person for a period of one year, and the quota for visits to Komodo National Park will be limited to 200,000 people per year," said the Coordinator of the Program for Strengthening the Functions of Komodo National Park, Carolina Noge, at the Manggala Wanabakti Building, Ministry of the Environment Life and Forestry (KLHK), Jakarta. 

Carolina added that the plan is to apply the fee collectively in a systematic manner, IDR 15 million per four people per year. 

Furthermore, the calculation is taken based on the consideration of conservation costs, due to the loss of ecosystem service value due to the surge in tourist visits to Komodo National Park.

Every tourist who enters is considered to have an influence, both on animals, biodiversity, and the entire ecosystem in the area.

Previously, based on the calculations and recommendations from the study, conservation costs as compensation for each tourist visit ranged from IDR 2,943,730 to IDR 5,887,459. 

In addition, the visit quota will also be limited to 200,000 people per year. Tourists are also required to register online via the website that will be provided later.

This quota regulation is the result of the Ecosystem-Based Carrying Capacity Study in Komodo National Park which has been carried out by experts.

The ideal number of tourists obtained is 219,000 people per year, with a maximum number of visits of 292,000 people per year. 

This is done in order to preserve the wildlife in Komodo National Park and its ecosystem.
