In the Darien forests, some 9,000 cubic meters of wood of species in danger of extinction were cut between 2017 and 2018, according to the list of the Ministry of Environment (Miambiente) .

It is a conservative amount, calculated based on the logging permits of natural forests [that do not include logging in commercial reforestation farms], delivered to La Prensa , following a request covered by the Transparency Law .

The 2016 list of threatened fauna and flora species in Panama does not include some species considered endangered in the world.
