Surveillance and enforcement yes Five staff of the National Parks organisation were empowered as special agents of police in 2006. Two staff are remaining, and new staff are on the waiting list for the police course. The two existing special agents of police on staff are able to issue warnings and process verbal for violations. The maximum penalty for damage to fauna, flora or landscape of the National Park is Naf 5,000 (US$2,809). This is low however there have been no violations in the National Park and therefore it is considered sufficient for effective enforcement.
