National Parks

Protection of Indonesia's forestland has become an increasingly important issue during the last fifteen years or so. Between 1980 and 1986 alone the number of wild areas officially designated National Parks rose from five to sixteen, bringing the total National Park area close to five million hectares in extent.
The Indonesian Government's decision to take swift and effective measures with regard to conservation and environmental issues has been partly in response to a growing awareness of the need to conserve and regulate the supply of natural resources worldwide.
Indonesia still has large expanses of untamed forest and jungle, which, aside from their ecological importance, are a key to the success of the tourism industry. With the increasing number of National Parks in Indonesia, the splendor of the natural environment will hopefully be preserved for the enjoyment of future generations.
