Since 1972, sites of natural, historic, and cultural significance have been designated as World Heritage sites by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Although World Heritage designation offers some protection, these sites are still at risk today from both natural and man-made causes, such as earthquakes in Peru, civil strife in the Congo, and unsustainable tourism in Cambodia. Disappearing World uncovers the dramatic stories behind 101 of the most remarkable and endangered sites from every corner of the world, including:The Great Wall of China | Serengeti | London | Kathmandu Valley | Machu Picchu | Iguaçu National Park | Petra | Angkor | Ngorongoro | Everglades | Bam | Tropical Rainforest of Sumatra | Prague | Minaret of Jam | Historic Istanbul | Galápagos Islands | Kilimanjaro | Venice | Great Barrier Reef . . . and many more.A portion of all proceeds will go to support the conservation of World Heritage sites.
