Abstract

Ecotourism is a part of tourism that has become more popular and well accepted from those who prefer and enjoy vacation involving nature. Main attractions of ecotourism are flora, fauna and cultural heritage. In Sabah, there are many ecotourism activities going on on the islands. But, the presence of huge numbers of tourists might also indirectly disturb the habitat of the living creatures on those areas. Thus, it is very important to educate and deliver conservation knowledge to the tourists so that the impact of can be reduced and achieve the purposes of ecotourism itself. This research was conducted to examine whether relation exists between the density of the reptile species Varanus salvator that present on Sapi Island with the conservation knowledge of tourists who visit the island. The density of V.salvator was counted for six weeks at three different areas on the island. Surveys upon 50 respondents that were present on the island or had been to the island before were also conducted. Collected data through counting and surveys were examined and analyzed to obtained final result and conclusion for this research. After conducting the research, I found out that there is no relationship between the density of V.salvator on Sapi Island with the conservation knowledge of tourists that visit the island
