Pyramids of Giza,
Egypt


All around the world, there are areas which have been deemed so important to the planet that they are protected with a listing as a World Heritage Site. The World Heritage Convention ensures that both historic, man-made sites and unique natural areas are safe from being lost from the world forever. Today, there are more than 900 listed sites found all around the world including 704 cultural and 180 natural areas.

Historic monuments like the ancient Pyramids of Giza and China's Great Wall, and biologically unique regions such as The Serengeti in Africa and the Great Barrier Reef on Australia's east coast, are some of the most famously listed sites. There are however many, many more and here are just a handful:
