Ujung Kulon National Park

Language: English

Located on the south-western tip of Java, Ujung Kulon ("West Point") first received protection in 1910, when it was made a hunting preserve. Eleven years later it was upgraded to a natural monument and wildlife reserve, and 1980 it had become one of the five national parks of Indonesia.

Soon after the Indonesian government adopted a UNESCO development plan for Ujung Kulon, UNESCO learnt that the direction of the park had authorized a hotel concession on the site's most sensitive spot. This video explains the actions taken to successfully stop such development and preserve the park.

This short video is part of Tides of Time, 2009, an interactive DVD that features eight of UNESCO World Heritage sites around the world. (consult it here)
