Jaeger-LeCoultre Joins The Unesco World Heritage Centre And The International Herald Tribune To Preserve The Marine Environment

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

The World Heritage Marine Programme supported by the Jaeger-LeCoultre manufacturing company is global in scope. Its aim is particularly to check the implementation of the approved operations, take part in training site managers and to provide technical support to states wishing to apply to have an ecosystem listed as a heritage site.

In a first step, eight sites were selected according to two criteria: the urgency of immediate action and their position on the globe so as to maximise the international awareness of this initiative.

-Galápagos Islands (Ecuador) -Great Barrier Reef (Australia) -Gulf of Porto: Calanche of Piana, Gulf of Girolata, Scandola Reserve(France) -Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System (Belize) -Tubbataha Reef Marine Park (Philippines) -iSimangaliso Wetland Park (South Africa) -Whale Sanctuary of El Vizcaino (Mexico) -Ujung Kulon National Park (Indonesia)
