New Inscriptions to UNESCO World Heritage List

Fifteen Cultural, five natural, and one mixed property have been inscribed on the World Heritage List.  The 34th session of the World heritage Committee met in Brazil recently to choose those to be named for 2010 from a list of nominations for the World Heritage List and the List of World Heritage in Danger.  Three countries had sites added for the first time – Kiribati, Marshall Islands, and Tajikistan.  One site was recognized for its cultural values and this became a mixed site.  Four sites were added to the List of World Heritage in Danger, and the Galapagos Islands were removed from that list.

For a list of the sites and descriptions, check out the update on the UNESCO site!
