We are here again to continue our trip around endangered places of the world. Soon they can disappear forever but you still have enough time to take a trip there.
We are going to introduce you 8 more places from our list for you to visit at least once.
Madagascar forests, National Park of the USA, islands, seas and mountains are waiting for you in our today’s trip.
8. Forests of Madagascar
Due to the massive deforestation of the unique forests of Madagascar, soon there will be almost nothing left.
9. Glacier National Park, USA
Once in this national park, located in the US state of Montana, there were 150 glaciers. Now there are less than 25 left. Due to warming, they can completely disappear by 2030, which will cause serious damage to the ecosystem of the park.
10. Venice, Italy
Experts say that the most romantic city in the world is sinking and will continue to sink. While Venice has not turned into Atlantis, it is necessary to go there.
11. Machu Picchu, Peru
The ancient city of the Incas, recognized as one of the seven new wonders of the world, is very popular among tourists these days. Tourists, together with landslides and erosion, gradually destroy this remnant of an ancient civilization. A limit on daily visits to this attraction has been already officially set – no more than 2,500 people per day. But the rule is regularly violated. So Machu Picchu is an endangered antiquity that is not worth visiting for the sake of its preservation.
12. Galapagos Islands
A large influx of tourists threatens the Galapagos Islands, located off the coast of Ecuador.
13. Congo Basin, Africa
This place is the second largest rainforest in the world. It is also one of the most biologically diverse on the planet: there are thousands of plant and hundreds of animal and bird species here. Alas, but the UN does not exclude that two-thirds of the forest may already die by 2040 due to the destruction of trees, poaching and for other reasons.
14. Dead Sea
Over the past 40 years, the most famous salt lake on the planet has decreased by a third. Experts suggest that after 50 years it may disappear completely. The reason for this is the countries that use the water of the Jordan River, the only source of the Dead Sea.
15. Everglades National Park, USA
The state of this natural complex in Florida is estimated as the most depressing among American national parks. The threat to this is represented by a large amount of water, new types of animals and plants introduced by man, violating the ecosystem of the park, as well as the growth of cities and industry in the region.
16. Alps, Europe
The bad news for winter sports enthusiasts: the snow cover of the Alps is also melting. Every year, due to global warming, the mountain range loses about 3% of glaciers. Thus, by 2050, they may disappear forever.
The last part of endangered places around the globe is coming soon. Do not miss!
