THE NATIONAL PARK
Ujung Kulon National Park was added to as Natural World Heritage Site by UNESCO List in 1991, national park on the island of Java, in Jawa Barat provinsi (province), Indonesia. It is best known as the last refuge of the one-horned javan rhinoceros. A remote area of low hills and plateaus, with small lagoons and coastal dunes, it occupies a total area 122,956 hectares on a peninsula and some islands at the extreme western tip of Java. Several species of endangered plants and animals can be found there, the javan rhinoceros being the most seriously under threat.
Ujung Kulon's natural riches - a huge divers ity of plants and animals - were first recognized by Dutch and British researchers and botanists in 1820. Some 700 species of plant are well protected, and about 57 of them are categorized as endangered species, including bayur (pterospermum javanicum), bengang (neesia altissima), salam (syzygium polyanthum), and various species of orchid.
Ujung Kulon National Park location regency of Pandeglang (province of Banten). Temperature 25°- 30° C, rainfall 3,200 mm/year (on average). Altitude 0 - 608 m asl. Geographical location 102°02' - 105°37' E; 6°30' - 6°52' S.
Although over 250 species have been recorded in Ujung Kulon National Park, the birds are not always easily seen as many live high in the forest canopy or are vigilant inhabitants of the dense undergrowth. However it is the constant bird calls of Ujung Kulon National Park that contribute to the atmosphere of the forest, for seldom is the park silent.
