Factors* affecting the property identified in previous reports
Discovery of natural gas next to the park
Current conservation issues
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.
