World Heritage
The property was re-inscribed on the List of World Heritage in Danger, on the request of the State Party, due to concerns that the property’s aquatic ecosystem continues to deteriorate, in particular as a result of:

Alterations of the hydrological regime (quantity, timing, and distribution of Shark Slough inflows)
Adjacent urban and agricultural growth (flood protection and water supply requirements that affect the property’s resources by lowering water levels)
Increased nutrient pollution from upstream agricultural activities;
Protection and management of Florida Bay resulting in significant reduction of both marine and estuarine biodiversty
