Inscription of the property
The decision of the World Heritage Committee was announced on July 7th, 2008.
The members of the committee agreed unanimously that the Joggins Fossil Cliffs should be inscribed onto the list.
The nomination of the Cliffs was described as the “most complete” nomination ever received by the World Heritage Committee and that it should be used as an example for properties submitting nominations in the future.
The Joggins Fossil Institute must now provide reports to the UNESCO World Heritage Committee on the management and conservation of the site on a regular basis.
