Diversity worth protecting

The UNESCO World Heritage Site Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch covers an area of 824 km2. 85 percent of the area lies at an altitude of over 2000 m above sea level. The World Heritage label is the highest distinction awarded to a natural landscape - but at the same time also an obligation to preserve it for the next generation.
