Indonesia has a well-preserved, natural ecosystem with rainforests that stretch over about 57% of indonesia’s land (910,000 square kilometers or 225 million acres), approximately 2% of which are mangrove systems. One reason why the natural ecosystem in indonesia is still well-preserved is because only 6,000 islands out of 17,000 are permanently inhabited. Forests on sumatra and java are examples of popular tourist destinations. Moreover, indonesia has one of longest coastlines in the world, measuring 54,716 kilometers (33,999 mi), with a number of beaches and island resorts, such as those in southern bali, lombok, bintan and nias island. However, most of the well-preserved beaches are those in more isolated and less developed areas, such as karimunjawa, the togian islands, and the banda islands. There are 50 national parks in indonesia, of which six are world heritage listed. The largest national parks in sumatra are the 9,500-square-kilometre (3,700 sq. Mi) gunung leuser national park, the 13,750-square-kilometre (5,310 sq. Mi) kerinci seblat national park and the 3,568-square-kilometre (1,378 sq. Mi) bukit barisan selatan national park, all three recognised as tropical rainforest heritage of sumatra on the unesco world heritage list. Other national parks on the list are lorentz national park in papua, komodo national park in the lesser sunda islands, and ujung kulon national park in the west of java.
