World Monuments Watch List

The World Monuments Fund (WMF), an international organization with a mission to preserve historic sites around the globe, recently published its 2016 World Monuments Watch List. This list is published every two years and has sites that are in danger of being destroyed because of weather conditions, conflict in the area, natural disasters, too many tourists, or simply neglect. The WMF brings the world’s attention to these sites, and many of them receive money through donations to help fix and preserve them. In this year’s list, there were  50 sites in 36 countries. You can check out the sites on this map.
