Theme Park Covers Topless Mermaid Statues With Bronze Tops In Effort To Become ‘Family Friendly’

Adek Berry/AFP/Getty Images A pair of bare-breasted mermaid statues have been given the family values treatment at an Indonesian amusement park where officials slipped golden tube tops over their chests. While the nude statues have been on display for years at Jakarta’s Ancol Dreamland, a recent policy aimed at respecting “Eastern values” has seen the mermaids get an official cover-up. h/t:

Lesser Sunda Islands, Indonesia

1

Travel photographer Jonne Seijdel captures incredible sights & animals at the Lesser Sunda Islands, Indonesia.

The Lesser Sunda Islands consist of two geologically distinct archipelagos. The northern archipelago, which includes Bali, Lombok, Sumbawa, Flores and Wetar, is volcanic in origin. The islands of the southern archipelago, including Sumba, Timor and Babar, are non-volcanic.

More than half of the original vegetation of the islands has been cleared for planting of rice and other crops, for settlement and by consequent forest fires. Only Sumbawa now contains a large area of intact natural forest, while Komodo, Rincah and Padar are now protected as Komodo National Park.

A number of the islands having original vegetation of dry forest rather than the rain forest that covers much of the Indonesian region, have been designated by the WWF as the Lesser Sundas deciduous forests ecoregion.
