Cerro El Copey is not only a well conserved and relatively undisturbed park, it also counts with a skilled management team, both at the park and at the local government level (i.e. within the land ordinance commission). The park currently projects to increase its size, and exclude a large portion of the most highly impacted area due to the settlements occupying its interior. The various endemic and endangered species it harbors demonstrate a high biodiversity value. However, due to INPARQUES' perpetual budget crisis the park's management is threatened and as a result, the existence of the protected area is uncertain. We therefore classify Cerro El Copey National Park as vulnerable.
