The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) strive to advance the fields of human and social science, natural science and culture. Under the theme of culture they have created the World Heritage List which encompasses those properties which exhibit unique cultural or natural merit and possess a common heritage for humanity. As members of the World Heritage Convention, the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland stand counted among the many nations who shoulder the responsibility for the conservation of not only the natural and cultural treasures within their borders, but support the preservation of the world's natural and cultural heritage for present and future generations.
