Wadi Al-Hitan to be on World Heritage List
"Some of the world's deepest Norwegian fjords and a fossil-strewn Egyptian desert are set to join the U.N.'s heritage site protection list, a key conservation agency said on Friday. The Swiss-based IUCN said the sites -- Norway's Gerangerfjord and Naeroyfjord plus Egypt's Wadi Al-Hitan, or Whale Valley -- are among eight it has recommended for approval at a meeting of the World Heritage Committee in South Africa next week". There are no more details about the Wadi Al-Hitan itself, but see the article for more about the World Heritage list.
