LIST OF WHL WORLD HERITAGE SITES
The identification, protection, conservation and passing down to future generations of cultural and natural heritage across the world: this is one of UNESCO’s chief missions. Heritage refers to the legacy of our past, which we enjoy today and which we pass onto future generations. Our heritage, be it cultural or natural, is an irreplaceable source of life and inspiration. The Convention Concerning the Protection of the World’s Cultural and Natural Heritage, adopted by UNESCO in 1972, dictates that candidates may be added to the World Heritage List as “Cultural heritage”, “Natural heritage” and mixed cultural and natural sites.
