Factors* affecting the property identified in previous reports
Poaching, gold prospection, tree-felling, and subsequent encroachment
Current conservation issues
IUCN has brought this site to the attention of the Committee four times since 1982, recommending it for consideration in the List of World Heritage in Danger.
The values of the park have been considerably eroded since it was inscribed through gold mining, poaches, illegal settlement and felling of timber inside the park.
The Committee should make further attempts for information from the Tai authorities recognising that prospects for some improvements are now possible through a WWF-funded project in the park.

3) Tai National Park (Cote d'Ivoire)
The Committee noted that the natural values of this property had declined due to various illegal activities within the park. The Committee was, however, glad to learn of a forthcoming project financed by WWF, US-AID and possibly with a contribution from the World Heritage which could help mitigate the current situation, and requested IUCN to report back to the Committee at its next session.
