Current conservation issues

From 20 to 27 September 2010, a joint World Heritage Centre/IUCN monitoring mission visited the property, as requested by the World Heritage Committee at its 33rd session (Seville, 2009). The mission report is available online at the following web address: http://whc.unesco.org/en/sessions/34COM/, and the final report incorporated some factual corrections proposed by both States Parties.

On 9 April 2010 Canada submitted by email a joint report on the state of conservation of the property. A hardcopy reached the World Heritage Centre from the United States of America on 12 April together with the Memorandum of Understanding between the Province of British Columbia (Canada) and the State of Montana (United States of America) concerning Environmental Protection, Climate Action and Energy. The report of the States Parties addresses the issues raised in Decision 33 COM 7B.22, and also reports, inter alia, on developments that have taken place since the reactive monitoring mission. The key issues considered in the Committee decision relate to transboundary cooperation, mining threats, wildlife connectivity, climate change impacts, and a number of other issues. The report below presents the relevant mission conclusions, the subsequent report from the State Party, and the observations of the World Heritage Centre and IUCN.
