Factors* affecting the property identified in previous reports
Ngorongoro Conservation Area was included in the List of World Heritage in Danger in 1984 due to poaching and threats posed by illegal agricultural encroachments. Continuous monitoring and technical assistance projects contributed towards improving the state of conservation leading to the removal of the site from the List of World Heritage in Danger in 1989. Recent increased and growing pressure for land as well as increased overgrazing and tourist vehicle activity cause major threats to the site.
