Friends of World Heritage
Through Friends of World Heritage you can help protect the natural and cultural wonders of the world; explore the majesty of these places, recognized for their “outstanding value to humanity”. World Heritage sites, both manmade and natural, have withstood the test of time for hundreds or even thousands of years. Yet some face imminent threats, including 30 sites that the UNESCO World Heritage Committee has inscribed on its “In Danger” list. These sites are deteriorating, and face destruction, due to external factors ranging from armed conflict to climate change.
Over the years, National Geographic has awarded more than 8,000 grants for exploration, research, and conservation efforts. We support and fund explorers from traditional and emerging disciplines that bring you exciting new discoveries direct from the field. From the discovery of the R.M.S. Titanic to "Lucy's Baby," our grantees and explorers make extraordinary finds. The mission of National Geographic's Education Foundation is to motivate and enable each new generation to become geographically literate. Their web site, TV channel and time honoured magazine continue to enlighten and education people about the world's natural splendors.
