Manovo-Gounda St Floris National Park
Threats to the Site (1997)
The site was added to the List of World Heritage in Danger following reports of illegal grazing and poaching by heavily armed hunters, who, according to some reports, may have harvested as much as 80% of the park's wildlife. The shooting of four members of the park staff in early 1997 and a general state of deteriorating security have brought all development projects and tourism to a halt.
The government of the Central African Republic has proposed to assign site management responsibility to a private Foundation.
