The Bureau recalled that the Committee at its sixteenth session, while approving the extension of this transfrontier site to include the Glacier Bay National Park (USA), urged the American and the Canadian authorities to incorporate additional areas to the World Heritage property.
On 30 September 1993, a nomination was received for the extension of this site by the addition of the Tashanshini-Alsek area in the province of British Columbia, Canada. The Committee may wish to welcome this addition since it responses to its request and reinforces the integrity of the entire site. IUCN has made a field visit to the site and the representative of IUCN will provide additional information.
