Starting a new series...

Order of Cluny
Caspar pointed out that Prieuré Notre-Dame de La Charité-sur-Loire is not part of the Loire WHS, but of the French Route to Compostela. That means that we now have only 2 sites left for this connection and it is not complete anymore . Anyone for a third? http://www.worldheritagesite.org/connection/Order+of+Cluny

I would like to propose a connection about mammoths:

Caves of Ice Age Art - mammoth ivory objects
Chauvet Pont d'Arc - depictions of mammoth
a third one ??

We have got the Mammoth Cave in Dachstein as well as Mammoth NP, but both have nothing to do with actual mammoths.
Any suggestions?

Wrangel Island
From carbon dating of bones found there is considered the last pre-extinction refuge of Mammoths . See https://journals.uair.arizona.edu/index.php/radiocarbon/article/view/2015/2018

Wrangel: woolly mammoths survived on Wrangel Island until 1650 BC, the most recent survival of all known mammoth populations.

Khomani - traditional hunting
-> Connection is limited to natural WHS "WHS inscribed on natural criteria where local inhabitants are allowed to hunt and kill significant protected species as part of their "way of life"

A couple more have been sent to me (Spanish Route to Santiago, Dijon climats), so we can keep the connection

Caves and Ice Age Art
Jura/Swiss Alps hotspot
>> a bit too far from the center, Lausanne, I guess

Okinoshima

I found that Okinoshima has connection in both Living indigenous religions and Shinto. I understand that since we have separate Shinto connection, there is no need to connect with Living indigenous religions again. Also if Okinoshima can have connection with Living indigenous religions, then all other WHS Shinto sites can be too.

Valley Loire.
On this site, it is written that in 2017 the boundary changed: "To include the Estate of Chenonceau as minory boundary modification". Does Chenonceau is now included in the buffer zone? Where did you read it?

EDIT: OK, i found it: http://whc.unesco.org/fr/list/933/documents/ and I totally agree with this boundary change

Siena - Destroyed or damaged by fire
>> recently reported fire was suggested as a connection, but it seems it has done no permanent damage to the structure (seems a bit to minor to me to add it to the connection)

Richtersveld - Potential Transboundary sites (Namibia's Fishriver canyon)
>> the canyon lies in Richtersveld Transfrontier Park, so geographically they are close. But I think seeing it as an extension is unlikely, as Richtersveld is a cultural site and Fishriver a natural one. Also, Fishriver has been on the tentative list longer. There's also no hint to it in Richtersveld's AB evaluation.
