100 Places to remember before they disappear

Before I launch (or let them launch) into a description of the "why" of this project, I want to say that I picked it because the visuals are just stunning. Absolutely gripping. When you get to the website, just click around -- look for slider bars on the text, and video prompts below. There is a lot to see here and it's all quite amazing.

100 Places to Remember before they Disappear -- in their own words:
is a multi-channel communication platform using the fascination of photography to showcase the beauty and susceptibility of certain habitats impacted by climate change.

Through books, exhibitions, websites... we communicate solutions and explications on the earth’s climatic problems.

100 Places to Remember Before they Disappear” is an outstanding visual experience.

Based on the IPCC reports, the project aims to raise awareness throughout the world - reaching it’s peak during the UN Climate Conference, COP 15 in Copenhagen 2009.
