Petra National Trust strives to find a balance between the requirements of tourism and the preservation of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Petra;, which means that our priority to protect Petra, while making it accessible to tourism, work hand in hand.
A major part of what we do is raise awareness about the issues that are affecting Petra’s fragility and what can be done to prevent further damage to the site.
The issues listed below are those that currently face the Park. We have not listed the many past issues that have been resolved. Only where issues of the region surrounding Petra have a direct impact on the Park will they be referred to. At this stage we are addressing issues of site management; issues regarding conservation and community related concerns will be developed later.
