Last Monday, the World Heritage Committee added nine new natural sites to the World Heritage List. Among the inscriptions are some of the most impressive landscapes and most important natural areas for the conservation of iconic species on Earth.

The list includes diverse landscapes such as Khangchendzonga National Park in India, a cultural and natural site home to endangered species such as the snow leopard and musk deer; Canada's Mistaken Point, known for its unique, diverse and well-preserved fossils; and Iran's Lut Desert, noted for its remarkable variety of desert landforms.
