Current conservation issues

The Tadrat Acacus is a large massif in a remote area near the Algerian border that hosts hundreds of rock shelters containing mainly Neolithic rock paintings and engravings. In April 2009, ten rock art sites in two of the main wadis, including some of the most well-known and highly acclaimed images were vandalised through the application of spray paint.
