Feature preview

Switzerland is bidding to have the "Jungfrau-Aletsch-Bietschhorn" region declared a Unesco World Heritage Site. Unesco is expected to decide later this year. If the bid is successful, it will be the first time a natural region of the Alps is rewarded with such an honour. The bid has drawn attention to the fragility of the rapidly receding alpine glaciers and the importance of the Aletsch forest in protecting endangered flora and fauna.
