Discovery of natural gas next to the park
As IUCN reported to the Bureau, the threat from plans by Shell Oil and Petroperu for oil and gas exploration along the northern boundary of the park has subsided.
Undoubtedly this will be raised again in future, but, except for some settlers moving to the area in anticipation of future development, there are no current serious management issues that need to be followed up by the Committee.
Manu National Park (Peru)
The Committee noted that the possibility still existed for future oil and gas exploration which could prejudice the integrity of this site.
