Belize’s WH-listed coral reefs can be taken off in-danger list, IUCN says—but add NPs in Kenya

In-danger status can be lifted from the world’s second largest coral reef, Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in charge of advising the UNESCO World Heritage Committee on natural sites.


IUCN recommends danger-listing Kenya’s Lake Turkana National Parks, whose unique values could quickly degrade as a new dam in Ethiopia moves into operation without proper impact assessment. IUCN also raises concern over recently announced plans to log in the heart of Tanzania’s danger-listed Selous Game Reserve.
