Conservation issues presented to the World Heritage Committee in 1987
The last northern white rhinos in the wild are holding their own and in fact have increased by three to a total of 18.
Their status is still precarious, however, and support from the donors involved, including World Heritage, is scheduled to continue.
Analysis and Conclusions of the World Heritage Centre and IUCN
Decision Adopted: 11 COM VIII.17
17. The Committee noted with satisfaction that the situation in two of the natural sites inscribed on the List of World Heritage in Danger - namely Djoudj National Park (Senegal) and Ngorongoro Conservation Area (Tanzania) - had considerably improved in the last year and that IUCN would be proposing that they be removed from the List of World Heritage in Danger in the next two years. The situation of Garamba National Park (Zaire) was also improving but was still critical.
