Committee Decisions

CONF 001 X.A

SOC: Yellowstone National Park (USA)

5) Yellowstone National Park (USA)

The Committee noted that an exceptionally large fire had occurred in the Park during 1988 but that no World Heritage values had been lost. The Committee welcomed the proposal of the representative of the USA to provide further information on the results of the review of the fire management policy for wilderness areas and the restoration/recovery plan aimed at showing visitors how Yellowstone was being "reborn".
