Satellite images from May 2023 showed deforested areas, unauthorized forest roads, and coca leaf crops within the reserve. Indigenous organizations have highlighted the lack of concrete action by the Peruvian government to protect the Kakataibo people in isolation.

During an overflight on March 15, 2024, indigenous leaders and representatives from Aidesep and Fenacoka observed two other open pits in the forest and a large amount of illegal coca leaf crops, indicating the influence of drug trafficking in the territory.
