Very little scientific research or conservation activities are being conducted in the park. However, the flora is relatively well known and a bird species list has been published by Provita (Rojas-Suárez et al. 1998). There is also a vertebrate inventory for the entire island (Bisbal 2001) and a study of the park's mosquito species, in which 14 species were reported that had never been observed on the island (Navarro 1998). Sanz and Márquez (1991) and Martínez et al. (2001) considered conservation of the endangered white-faced monkey (Cebus apella margaritae), which figure on the list of endangered species. Because of the park's importance as a refuge and remnant habitat for the island's wildlife, biological and ecological research efforts should be increased.
