Global Heritage Fund

Global Heritage Fund

See the Earth's archaeological and cultural glory.

For thousands of years, different cultures have shaped the world we live in today. The Global Heritage Fund layer explores the 13 cultural heritage sites that GHF is attempting to preserve for future generations. From ancient Mayan Mirador pyramids buried in a Guatemalan forest threatened by clear cutting to the crumbling Lijiang Ancient Town in China, which represents 1,000 years in the lives of the Naxi people, GHF introduces you to these threatened archaeological treasures, and the work it's doing, in partnership with local governments and resources, to save them.
