Finished Mali. Oh, want to go there again so much. Besides the impressive earthen architecture, it has 2 natural WHS on its T list that could stand a chance. The Niger River Basin is the largest continental wetland in West Africa and the second for Africa after the Okavango Delta in Botswana. The Gourma Elephant Biodiversity Reserve is the only area in the Sahel where elephants still can be found (some 300-900 specimens of a desert-adapted species of African elephants).

So I did Niger.
At least 2 of its tentative sites are already endangered even before being brought forward:
- Palais du Zarmakoye de Dosso: "riots broke out and parts of the Zarmakoye palace were reduced to ashes by opponents of the regime"
- Zone Giraphe: in 2020 8 people were murdered here, six of them young French aid workers.

Among the more interesting sites are the historic town of Zinder, the Salt Route through the Sahara and the Termit Massif.

As we are near the finish line now, here is an overview of countries still to do:
Bosnia (Jasam)
Czechia (meltwaterfalls)
Iran (I will take that one to finish)
Malta
Mauritania
Mauritius
Mongolia
Montenegro (Colvin)
Morocco
Nigeria
North Macedonia
Philippines (Zos)
Rep of Moldova
Romania (carmendavid)
Rwanda
Tunisia
UAE
Ukraine (Hubert)
Uruguay

I'd like to end this project by the end of May, as at that moment in time we will be busy with the batch of new nominations for the upcoming double WHC meeting. If your name is behind one of the countries and you cannot finish it, please tell me so someone else can take over. It's no problem, it's all voluntary.

I'm hoping to get Czechia done this weekend, but we shall see if my little rascals give me time to do so.
