"For the first time, the World Monuments Watch list of 100 Most Endangered Sites covers every continent, including its first Antarctica nomination, explorer Ernest Shackleton's hut. The list, announced today by the World Monuments Fund (WMF), also features for the first time sites in Australia, Ecuador, Finland, the Palestinian Territories, Paraguay, Slovenia, South Africa, Taiwan, and Trinidad and Tobago. Also of interest this year are multi-national nominations such as the Jesuit Guaraní Missions submitted by Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay; and industrial sites of cultural value such as the company towns of Chile's nineteenth-century saltpeter industry."
