Komodo Dragons are Moving Toward Extinction

The Komodo dragon also known as the Komodo monitor which is the Native animal of Komodo island in Indonesia is now moving toward extinction.

Komodo dragons were previously considered as “vulnerable” species but last week their status was changed to “Endangered” by the conservation organization.

With this new title activists are hoping that international conservation groups and policymakers pay more attention and expand their protection for this giant lizard. The main threat that these creatures are now facing is the environment change and sadly the International Union for Conservation of Nature warns that suitable Komodo dragon habitat is expected to shrink by at least 30 percent in the next 45 years.
