Rock art in danger sounds dramatic, nevertheless it is not an overstatement. During the last hundred years different kinds of destructions have never been so rapid and extensive.
It is urgent to record as much as possible, because in the next 50-100 years a large part of the cultural heritage all over the world will have disappeared.
Through the effect of various natural phenomena, such as freeze/thaw which fragment the surfaces, exposure to sun and wind and the effect of lichens and moss. Changes of the environment created by man (environmental pollution) also have a detrimental impact.
