Connection: Undergoing Restoration or Repair

Gelati Monastery - The ancient frescoes in the Gelati Monastery have been damaged by rainwater due to improper restoration of the roof, the UNESCO has claimed. The UNESCO has notified Georgian authorities that the roof should be repaired not later than February 2022, since its absence could lead to further damage to the temple. (UNESCO links damage to Gelati Monastery with restorers' errors)

Connection: Undergoing Restoration or Repair

Paris, Banks of the Seine - The Notre-Dame cathedral will undergo restoration work more than two years after a blaze ravaged the heritage landmark in 2019. It remains on course to reopen in 2024. The focus until September 2021 had been on making the cathedral safe before restoration work could begin. (Notre-Dame Cathedral ready for restoration after post-fire safety work completed)

Connection: 'Threatened' by Roads

Iguacu - A bill introduced in Brazil's Congress calls for reopening a closed road that cuts through Iguaçu National Park. The proposal poses a serious threat to jaguars, whose numbers have been growing steadily there. Reopening the road, closed since 2001, will not only increase the animals' risk of being hit by vehicles but also make it easier for poachers to hunt them. (Jaguar stronghold in Brazil's Iguaçu Park threatened by road reopening plan)

Connection: Biological Corridor

Iguacu - The Green Corridor, which includes the Brazilian Iguacu park, Argentina's Iguazú National Park and Urugua-í Provincial Park; other forest fragments located in the Argentine province of Misiones; and Turvo State Park in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. (Jaguar stronghold in Brazil's Iguaçu Park threatened by road reopening plan)

Connection: Unfinished constructions

Church of Atlántida - The belltower stands to the side of the church, as it was meant to be a focal point of a future square. This idea was never precisely formulated by Dieste, however. (Nominaton text, p. 22)

Connection: Affected by Climate Change

Chinchorro Culture - The Atacama's dry weather has helped preserve the Chinchorro mummies for thousands of years, but some have rapidly deteriorated in the past decade, their skin melting into black ooze. According to Harvard scientists, climate change is causing microorganisms to attack the mummies' collagen. Stronger El Niño currents are behind the region's increasing humidity, meaning the mummies are endangered whether they're in a museum or buried in the desert. (Can UNESCO status save the world's oldest mummies?)

*I've also posted this under the "Movies" thread but I thought of doing it here as well:

Guillermin's Death on the Nile (1978):
- Memphis and its Necropolis – the Pyramid Fields from Giza to Dahshur
- Ancient Thebes with its Necropolis
- Nubian Monuments from Abu Simbel to Philae

Whether that movie is of high critical acclaim or not, it surely is a classic movie adaptation of an Agatha Christie novel.

Connection: Mathematical Concepts

Church of Atlántida - One of Dieste's structural innovations were Gaussian Vaults. Gaussian Vaults are based on rationalizing the construction of double curvature forms using standard hollow-core ceramic units with steel reinforcement. The vaults take their name from German mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss, and refer to the normal distribution of a curve. The double curvature Gaussian form is used to prevent bending, maximize span, and minimize the material thickness of the vault. (Gaussian Vault Construction in Eladio Dieste's Work During the Cívico-Military Dictatorship in Uruguay.)

Connection: Swamp

Colchic Rainforests and Wetlands - The main ecosystems are ancient deciduous Colchic rainforests and wetlands, percolation bogs and other mire types of the distinct Colchic mire region. The percolation bogs are of particular global importance as they do not exist anywhere else in the world. (Official description)

Connection: Bird Migrations

Colchic Rainforests and Wetlands - The site is a key stopover for many globally threatened birds that migrate through the Batumi bottleneck. (Official description)

Connection: Bears

Colchic Rainforests and Wetlands - The nominated property also harbors healthy populations of large mammal species that are not listed as globally threatened, but which are important in the regional context, including European Brown Bear, Grey Wolf and European Lynx. (AB Ev)

Connection: Beech Forests

Colchic Rainforests and Wetlands - The Colchic forests comprise several types of vegetation, among which the East-Euxinian beech forests and oak forests that alternate with hornbeam-chestnut-beech forests. (Nomination Text, p. 23)

Connection: Peat

Colchic Rainforests and Wetlands - The Colchic Wetlands comprise a wide range of ecosystems but by far the most relevant to the proposed OUV of the series are peatlands. Within the typology of European mire regions, the peatlands of the Colchis form one of ten distinct mire regions of pan-Europe. Reflecting the warm-temperate environment, this region forms a structural and functional transition between the peatlands of the boreal and those of the tropical zones. (Nomination Text, p. 23)

Connection: Notable lakes

Colchic Rainforests and Wetlands - A significant role within the hydrologic regime of the Kolkheti territories plays also Paliastomi Lake which is the largest of over 40 other smaller lakes in the Kolkheti wetland complex. (Nomination Text, p. 27)

Connection: Notable examples of multiple speciation in one site

Colchic Rainforests and Wetlands - Some amphibians provide interesting examples of landscape-dependent speciation in the Colchic Rainforests and Wetlands, when specific conditions trigger divergence without full isolation. The endemic herpetofauna of the Mtirala-Kintrishi nominated component area and its surroundings also provide compelling examples of ongoing evolution and speciation within this refuge area. Landscape dependent speciation has also been observed in the snow voles. (Nomination Text, p. 51)
