ID608 - Ujung Kulon National Park (1991)

Brief Description

"This national park, located in the extreme south-western tip of Java on the Sunda shelf, includes the Ujung Kulon peninsula and several offshore islands and encompasses the natural reserve of Krakatoa. In addition to its natural beauty and geological interest – particularly for the study of inland volcanoes – it contains the largest remaining area of lowland rainforests in the Java plain. Several species of endangered plants and animals can be found there, the Javan rhinoceros being the most seriously under threat."


"马戎格库龙国家公园位于巽他大陆架的爪哇岛最西南端, 包括马戎格库龙半岛和几个近海岛屿,其中有喀拉喀托(Krakatoa)保护区。这里自然风光秀丽,在地质研究方面具有重要意义,特别是为内陆火山的研究 提供了很好的例证。除此之外,这里还保留着爪哇平原上面积最大的低地雨林。在那里生存着几种濒危动植物,其中受到威胁最大的是爪哇犀牛。"
