Unfortunately the ecosystem in the region of Madidi National Park faces new dangers. On one hand there have been plans to erect a dam near Rurrenabaque near Bala Gorge. It would significantly affect the biosphere and many species that live here. Additionally new geologic exploration discovered oil in the region. It is possible that subsequent interventions by human development might affect nature even further.
