KOMODO is one of the 17,508 Islands of Indonesia that compose the Indonesia. The island is particularly notable as the habitat of the Komodo dragon, the largest lizard on Earth, which is named for the island. Komodo Island has a surface area of 390 square kilometres and a human population of over two thousand. The people of the island are descendants of former Convicts who were exiled to the island and who have mixed with Bugis from Sulawesi. The people are primarily adherents of Islam in Indonesia but there are also Christianity in Indonesia and congregations.
Komodo is part of the Lesser Sunda Islands of islands and forms part of the Komodo National Park. In addition, the island is a popular destination for Scuba diving. Administratively, it is part of the East Nusa Tenggara Provinces of Indonesia.
RINCA, also known as Rincah and Rindja, is a small Island near Komodo (island) island, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia within the West Manggarai Regency. It is part of Komodo National Park. The island is famous for Komodo dragon, giant lizards that can measure up to 3 metres (9.8 ft) long. Rinca is also populated with many other species such as Boar, Bubalus and many birds.
Being less known and less visited than Komodo it is an good place to see the komodo dragon in its natural environment with fewer people to disturb them. Day trips can be arranged from Labuan Bajo on Flores by small boat at the park headquarters.
The island’s area is 198 square kilometres (76 sq mi).
Living conditions for local people on the island are often difficult. Education facilities, for example, are quite limited for children. Some non-government organisations help with the provision of books for children on Rinca. Local people must also take some care to avoid komodo dragons because komodos in the area occasionally attack and kill humans.
SUMBAWA is an Indonesia Island, located in the middle of the Lesser Sunda Islands chain, with Lombok to the west, Flores to the east, and Sumba further to the southeast. It is in the province of West Nusa Tenggara.
