World Monuments Watch

In preparation for the upcoming landscape geography series, Catholicgauze will kick it off with a map of world monuments at risk. World Monuments Watch is an online map which locates and describes monuments at risk due to urban change, abandonment, natural risks, war, etc.

Monuments define a culture's values, history, and everything else. If a culture does not value its representations on a landscape it does not fully respect itself.

It's odd that Israel is not included in the list of places with endangered historical legacies. THE HOLY LAND!!!!!!! Maybe it was in an earlier list?
