Abstract: 

The Parks in Peril program begin in 1990 to secure the survival of some of the most endangered and biologically important areas in Latin America and the Caribbean. This publication documents progress of the Parks in Peril program and provides detailed information about this group of protected areas. But the purpose of this book goes beyond enumerating the program's achievements; it also details the extraordinary complexity of the social, economic, and political forces affecting these protected areas. The book is arranged by geographic regions and provides information on each site's size, partner organizations, physical setting, climate, biological diversity, land tenure and use, threats, management activities, and community involvement. There is also a map of each area, and a locator inset, placing each site in country.
