This World Heritage area is a globally important ecosystem. World Heritage sites are areas recognized internationally for their outstanding value as natural and cultural treasures. The program, involving 185 countries, is one of the most universal legal instruments for the protection of these unique areas of global importance and demonstrates that the conservation of our World Heritage is the duty of the international community as a whole.
