Coiba in peril

The lack of scientific information and recommendations in the Public Use Plan (PUP) of the Coiba (island) National Park could put at risk the integrity of the ecosystems and biodiversity of the protected area, a group of Panamanian environmentalists has claimed. For this reason, several signatory NGOs requested the Ministry of the Environment (Miambiente) to define a roadmap to ensure that in the short term all the observations previously received for their acceptance are integrated into the PUP.
