The Komodo Dragon is better known than the people of this island. This dangerous reptile has killed Komodo people and their livestock. For this reason, the Komodo people keep their goats and other livestock on platforms for protection. The population of the local Komodo people is low; they share their island home with the more aggressive Buginese and Madurese. There is also a Chinese trading post. Komodo National Park is on the island and tourism was once the island's main source of revenue. However, rumors of park closure and increased awareness of the dangers of Komodo dragons have limited tourism to only the most adventurous visitors.
