Climate change is "fast becoming one of the most significant risks for world heritage sites worldwide" according to a new report from UNESCO, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS).
The report, 'World Heritage and Tourism in a Changing Climate', highlights some of the world's most famous sites as being impacted by climate change.
"Globally, we need to understand, monitor and address climate change threats to world heritage sites better," Mechtild Rossler, director of UNESCO's world heritage center, said in a statement.
Sites at risk include the Statue of Liberty and Chile's Easter Island.
The report says that while the Statue of Liberty may appear to be "solid and invulnerable" it is actually "at considerable risk from some of the impacts of climate change." These include rising sea levels, storm surges and increased intensity of storms.
