After previously in 1910 Lieutenant Steyn Van Hens Broek managed to provide evidence of the existence of this giant lizard. At first this animal was killed a lot, until then in 1915 the Dutch government banned the killing of this animal. In 1980 the Komodo National Park was formed to protect its natural habitat.
