Tides of Time

Aldabra, a pristine wilderness, is home to over 100,000 tortoises. It is also a windswept, unwelcoming crumb of land, floating in open ocean far from anywhere and covered with razor-sharp limestone and petrified coral.

The "Tides of Time" is an innovative multimedia campaign launched in 2008 by UNESCO, Jaeger-LeCoultre and the

International Herald Tribune. The campaign, which included nanosites featuring theses videos in the online version of the International Herald Tribune, won a Silver Award at the 2009 International Awards for Innovative Digital Marketing Solutions.

This short video is part of Tides of Time, 2009, an interactive DVD that features eight of UNESCO World Heritage sites around the world. (consult it here)
