2017: A Year in Photos

As a new year approaches, we are reflecting on conservation achievements made possible around the world by you, our supporters, in 2017.


This year, with your help, we launched conservation training for 30 Syrian refugees and Jordanians, performed emergency stabilization at the oldest astronomical observatory in the Americas, completed restoration of one of the world's most sacred sites of Christian pilgrimage, and so much more. But throughout 2017, one thing remained constant - our focus on helping communities reclaim their treasured places of memory.


Please enjoy a few of our favorite moments from 2017 through pictures, and thank you for all you do to champion sites of cultural heritage.


From all of us at World Monuments Fund, happy holidays!
