Conservation issues presented to the World Heritage Committee in 1987

This park is under a variety of threats.

First, there is a bill in Congress to reduce the level of legal protection by giving management control to the local authorities.

A new road proposal would have serious impacts on the Quilcayhuanca valley.

There is also some inappropriate tourism development proposals in the Llanganuco area.

Other management problems include over­grazing by domestic sheep, excessive burning and poaching by the military. 

Analysis and Conclusions of the World Heritage Centre and IUCN

The Committee should express its concern over the problems that threaten the site and request the Government of Peru to provide a progress report on the current World Heritage funded project in the park.
