UNESCO designates natural and man-made sites of "outstanding universal value" around the world as World Heritage sites to protect them for future generations. Students can zoom in on a world map to discover Heritage sites close to them as well as in far away places. This organization faces the challenge of protecting historic buildings and places such as Iran's ancient City of Bam and the Ruins of Songo Mnara in Tanzani. Natural sites like Mammouth Cave are also on the list to be preserved for the future. This is an excellent site to use for World Culture studies as it discusses conservation, diversity, conflict and cooperation, and many other geography standards.
