1 World Heritage status of the area and the Outstanding Universal Value of the Monarch butterfly migration phenomenon, c) Explore options for the development of non-butterfly related tourism activities; 5. Notes that any discussion on tourism development should deal with the conservation of butterfly populations as a priority, considering that high tourist numbers and poorly regulated visitation could potentially pose a threat to the butterflies by causing the degradation of their overwintering environment; 6. Also requests the State Party to submit to the World Heritage Centre, by 1 February 2015, a report on the state of conservation of the property, including information on progress achieved in the development of a benefit-sharing mechanism, the improvement of the visitor experience, and the development of non-butterfly related tourism activities. 33. Coiba National Park and its Special Zone of Marine Protection (Panama) N 1138 rev) Year of inscription on the World Heritage List 2005 Criteria (ix) (x) Year(s) of inscription on the List of World Heritage in Danger Previous Committee Decisions 29 COM 8B.13; 33 COM 7B.38 International Assistance UNESCO Extra-budgetary Funds Total amount provided to the property: USD350,000 (Management planning, installation of mooring buoys for diving boats, working with local communities, capacity building, public use planning, improved stakeholder understanding of legal protection measures) Previous monitoring missions Factors affecting the property identified in previous reports a) Continued and growing presence of cattle Illustrative material Current conservation issues On 15 February 2011 the State Party submitted a report on the state of conservation of the property. This report provides an overview of progress made in finalizing and implementing a management plan for the Special Zone of Marine Protection, establishing a formal policy on the development and conservation of the coastal zone opposite the property, and removing State of State of conservation of World Heritage properties WHC-11/35.COM/7B, p. 59

2 cattle from the property, as requested by the Committee in Decision 33 COM 7B.38. On 9 December 2010, the State Party submitted the Retrospective Statement of Outstanding Universal Value for review but it was considered incomplete. a) Management planning, fisheries management and governance The State Party reports that the Management Plan for the Special Zone of Marine Protection (SZMP) and associated fisheries regulations have yet to be finalised and approved, as urged by the Committee in Decision 33 COM 7B.38. No clear fisheries monitoring system for the property has been developed, as recommended by IUCN in its evaluation. The State Party notes that the National Fisheries Agency has established a satellite monitoring system for fishing vessels in all Panamanian jurisdictional waters, and that baseline data is available for geo-referenced fishing grounds, which should enable monitoring of the impacts of fishing activities on the property. The World Heritage Centre and IUCN welcome the development of a satellite monitoring system. They consider that coordinated communication between ARAP and the National Environmental Agency (ANAM) will be crucial to enable effective surveillance and control of illegal fishing. However, IUCN notes that it has received worrying reports about a marked increase in commercial, artisanal and sports fishing within Coiba National Park (NP) and its SZMP. This increase is reportedly linked to the delayed implementation of the Coiba NP Management Plan over the last three years, the continuing lack of a Management Plan for the Special Zone of Marine Protection, the poor capacity of the management agency, and other related governance issues. These reports are substantiated by a letter from the Scientific Committee of Coiba NP addressed to the Park s Board of Directors, dated 17 February 2011, which proposes a number of potential solutions to accelerate the implementation of Coiba NP s Management Plan. Furthermore, it appears that Montuosa Island within the property has been partly cleared for housing and banana plantations and has been used as a base for carrying out sports fishing, illegal shark fishing and turtle harvesting. The World Heritage Centre and IUCN are seriously concerned by the reported increase in commercial, artisanal and sports fishing within the property. Unless the Coiba NP and the SZMP Management Plans are urgently finalized and properly implemented, as requested by the Committee in Decision 33 COM 7B.38, the integrity of the property risks being seriously compromised. They also emphasize the importance of ensuring that the property s Management Plan s provisions and fishing regulations are adequately publicised amongst local communities, commercial operators and other park stakeholders and effectively applied by the authorities. b) Coastal development The State Party reports that it has not established a formal policy on the development and conservation of the coastal zone opposite the property, and emphasizes that existing environmental legislation and development plans provide considerable protection for the property. The Panamanian Tourism Authority has developed a Master Plan for Sustainable Tourism for Coiba ( ), which includes strategic guidelines for tourism management. However, further details on these guidelines are not provided. The State Party notes that the Master Plan does not include infrastructure or high-impact development on the coast nearest to the property. A number of investment projects are planned for outside the property, including tourist wharves, visitor reception centres and a theme park, as well as sanitary facilities for visitors on Coiba Island. The World Heritage Centre and IUCN remain seriously concerned about the growing potential for coastal development on the shores opposite the property. They recall that coastal development could exacerbate recreational and sports fishing pressures and State of State of conservation of World Heritage properties WHC-11/35.COM/7B, p. 60

3 significantly increase water pollution, and consider that existing environmental legislation and other development control mechanisms are insufficient to safeguard the property s Outstanding Universal Value. The World Heritage Centre and IUCN strongly recommend that the Committee urge the State Party to i) undertake a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) of the coastal zone s development potential, and ii) develop and implement a coastal zone development and conservation policy on the basis of this assessment to ensure that the cumulative development impacts to the property's Outstanding Universal Value are foreseen and effectively averted. c) Continued presence of cattle The State Party reports that it plans to remove 500 of the estimated 1,500 wild cattle within the property by 30 April 2011, and that most of the remaining pasture on Coiba Island has been fenced, with the exception of the San Juan River area. ANAM, which is now responsible for the removal of cattle, has prepared terms of reference for a private company to undertake the removal of 500 animals to the mainland. The State Party also reports that many cattle are dying of malnutrition and disease. The World Heritage Centre and IUCN note the State Party s efforts to remove wild cattle from Coiba Island, but remain concerned that none have been removed to date and that they continue to negatively affect the property s terrestrial and marine ecosystems through soil erosion and the resulting siltation of its coral reefs. They recall that the State Party submitted an International Assistance Request in March 2010 for a project to remove cattle from Coiba Island. IUCN at the time noted that the proposed methodology - round up and live removal of cattle - would be extremely challenging given the island s rugged terrain, and recommended that the State Party also consider other options, such as hunting (as has been successfully implemented in the large goat eradication project in Galapagos, Ecuador) to ensure the complete removal of cattle from Coiba Island. Advice should be sought on other potential methods for the permanent removal of cattle from Coiba Island, with the support of IUCN s World Commission on Protected Areas. d) Construction of a naval station on Coiba Island The World Heritage Centre and IUCN have received reports that a naval station is under construction at the former site of the Coiba Island prison. A letter to the State Party was sent on 9 April 2010, indicating concerns over the potential impacts of this development and requested further information, in line with Paragraph 172 of the Operational Guidelines. A second letter was sent on 22 March To date, no response has been received. The World Heritage Centre and IUCN are concerned over the potential impacts of such a military base on the property s Outstanding Universal Value, namely that: The base does not become a source if introduction of new species (e.g. biosecurity measures should be put in place); Personnel be well informed against trafficking of wildlife; Personnel do not engage in agricultural productions; Boundaries be very clearly marked, ideally with a fence, and as small as possible, with restrictions on movement of people beyond those boundaries; Shore facilities be built and managed in such as way as to not destroy sea bottoms, and contribute to erosion; The airport not be permitted to contribute to development pressures, such as tourism and hotels. Conclusion The World Heritage Centre and IUCN conclude that the main conservation concerns regarding this property remain poorly addressed. The delayed implementation of the Coiba State of State of conservation of World Heritage properties WHC-11/35.COM/7B, p. 61

4 NP Management Plan and the continued absence of a Management Plan for its Special Zone of Marine Protection remain to be addressed, several years after inscription. The absence of clear regulations specific to the requirements of this property appears to be contributing to the reported increase in incompatible activities within the property, particularly in regards to commercial and sports fishing. The decision to build a naval station on the property raises serious concerns over the State Party s commitment to conserving its Outstanding Universal Value, particularly in its lack of response to the World Heritage Centre s letter in this regard. The cattle removal effort is turning into a costly effort with few results to date, notwithstanding the reported death of cattle by disease and starvation. Unless the property s management capacity is significantly strengthened, there is concern over the State Party s ability to counter the growing threats highlighted in this report. Under these circumstances, the World Heritage Centre and IUCN recommend the application of a Management Effectiveness Evaluation for the property, in line with the Enhancing Our Heritage toolkit, in order to provide an informed analysis of management needs. Draft Decision: 35 COM 7B.33 The World Heritage Committee 1. Having examined Document WHC-11/35.COM/7B, 2. Recalling Decision 33 COM 7B.38, adopted at its 33rd session (Seville, 2009), 3. Regrets that the management plan for the Special Zone of Marine Protection has yet to be finalised or adopted, as previously urged by the World Heritage Committee in Decision 33 COM 7B.38, and considers that the property s lack of management capacity, if not addressed, could pose a potential threat to its Outstanding Universal Value, 4. Requests the State Party to urgently finalise the Management Plan for the Special Zone of Marine Protection, and to undertake an independent Management Effectiveness Evaluation, in line with the Enhancing Our Heritage toolkit, in order to inform the effective implementation of the management plans and fishing regulations for both Coiba National Park and its Special Protection Zone; 5. Reiterates its request that the State Party develop and implement a coastal zone development and conservation policy in order to ensure that cumulative development impacts on the property's Outstanding Universal Value are effectively addressed, and encourages the State Party to develop this policy on the basis of a Strategic Environmental Assessment of the coastal zone s development potential; 6. Notes that the State Party submitted an International Assistance Request for the removal of wild cattle from Coiba Island in March 2010, and strongly encourages the State Party to re-submit a revised request in line with the recommendations made by the World Heritage Centre and IUCN at the time of submission; 7. Also requests the State Party to submit to the World Heritage Centre, by 1 February 2012, a revised retrospective Statement of Outstanding Universal Value, for review by the Advisory Bodies; 7. Further requests the State Party to submit to the World Heritage Centre, by 1 February 2012, a report on the state of conservation of the property and on the progress made State of State of conservation of World Heritage properties WHC-11/35.COM/7B, p. 62
