Were you fascinated by news of the Higgs boson's discovery last year? Today is the CERN's 60th anniversary & it's being celebrated at our HQ, where CERN was established. It shows that better Science is shared science, and builds peace. Let's wish the CERN even greater success in the future http://ow.ly/yCZny

A UNESCO #WorldHeritage site needs your help! Your donations will help the Tropical Rainforest Heritage of Sumatra combat the crisis of poaching of Sumatran elephants. Now is the most intense hunting period. http://ow.ly/yBlAz 

Please SHARE this photo & tell your friends not to buy anything made out of illicit ivory.

#WorldHeritage: One of the new sites we designated today is from Costa Rica. These polished stone spheres of Diquís are one of the greatest mysteries in archaeology. 300 have been unearthed in pre-Columbian chiefdom settlements. Why is their roundness so intriguing? Are they maps of stars in the night sky? Or maybe they were like crystal balls, helping to tell the future? See more exclusive pics here & tell us what your theory is: http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/1453/gallery/

#WorldHeritage spotlight: Lakes of the Great Rift Valley in Kenya are home to the world's most fabulous spectacle of flamingos. The site is on the African-Eurasian flyway system where billions of birds are found to travel from northern breeding grounds to African wintering places. http://ow.ly/yQOqT

Update on rebuilding #WorldHeritage Timbuktu: We've been very busy, rebuilding mausoleums & conserving ancient manuscripts. While we still need $8 million to finish restoration, we won't tire in our efforts until the people of Mali can reclaim this heritage that's essential to their identity & that can contribute to reconciliation. This is vital for Mali and this is important for the rest of the world because World Heritage belongs to us all. http://ow.ly/yIpLJ

From what I seen on TV, this is a place filled with history, stories to tell, and manuscripts that have come to light.

2014 marks the centenary of WWI. More than 10,000 shipwrecks from WWI lie at the bottom of the ocean. These relics of war are powerful reminders of the need to work for peace, every day. We will ensure their international protection, as humanity's shared cultural heritage, deep underwater http://ow.ly/yu927
