Nino Konis Santana National Park is East Timor's first national park. It was declared on August 3, 2007 and includes over 1,236 square kilometres of land. It links three important bird areas; Lore, Monte Paitchau and Lake Iralalara, and Jaco Island. The park also includes 556 km² of the Coral Triangle, an underwater area which supposedly contains the World's greatest diversity of both coral and coral reef fish. Some of the rare birds protected by this park are the critically endangered Yellow-crested Cockatoo, the endemic Timor Green-pigeon, the endangered Timor Imperial-pigeon, and the vulnerable Timor Sparrow. The park is named in honor of Nino Konis Santana, a former commander of FALANTIL, the armed forces of the independence movement who was born in Tutuala, a village within the borders of the national park.
