Andi Kefi monitors the ecosystem at Komodo National Park to ensure the dragon's numbers remain stable and their habitat escapes damage. He worries more visitors could cause problems if the rangers don't get more support from the government.
The Indonesian Ministry of Tourism is promoting Komodo and several other remote islands this year in an effort to draw more tourist revenue to the country. But critics say infrastructure must first be improved.
Many of the villagers on Komodo Island make their living from selling woodcarvings and other souvenirs to visitors. The Ministry of Tourism hopes an increase in the number of tourists will help improve livelihoods.
