Canada | Wood Buffalo NP may go on WH in Danger List after UNESCO criticizes remediation plans

The status of Canada's largest park as a world heritage site remains wobbly after a United Nations body expressed grave doubts about a federal plan to rescue it.


"Considerably more effort will be needed to reverse the negative trends at a time when climate change combined with upstream industrial developments and resource extraction are intensifying," says a draft decision on Wood Buffalo National Park from UNESCO, which manages the UN's list of World Heritage Sites.
