New Delhi:

Beautiful places are all around the globe and so is its unwelcoming destruction caused majorly due to increasing pollution, green house effect that leads to melting of the glaciers and increasing sea level. With time and man-made destruction for the most part, these beautiful places are in more danger than ever. The Great Barrier Reef, the Taj Mahal, The Great Wall of China are some of the very few examples.

While many of these places are a feast to your never-ending wanderlust, only time will determine the status of their stay in coming years to come. Visit these beautiful places in their glory before they are endangered due to climate change, pollution and of course, the unceasing development.

The Great Barrier Reef-Australia

The Great Barrier Reef, the largest coral reef in the world is also one of the most beautiful. The turquoise blue water that is home to some 1500 varieties of fish covering an area of 1680 miles and is in more danger than ever.

In the past 27 years, reports have it that 50% of the reef has disappeared due to global warming and coral bleaching. And to add to the already destructive news, it is estimated that the Great Barrier Reef would be irreversibly damaged by the year 2030 unless tremendous measures are undertaken for its protection.

The Amazon Rainforest-South Africa

20 % of the world’s oxygen comes from this largest tropical rainforest in the world, the Amazon Rainforest. Covering an astounding 1.4 billion acres, the rainforest is also home to 20% of the birds species. With deforestation, mining, global warming, this life-giving rainforest stands at a risk of disappearing in the next 50 years.

Glaciers national park-United States

A park that now remains as a mockery to its name, Glacier national park, one of the most beautiful parks in the United States is quickly losing the one thing for which it is known- the glaciers!
Starting off with 150 glaciers spread all over the place, this natural wonder has confined to just 25 glaciers at present. And scientists speculate that there will be zero glaciers by 2030. With its endangerment, the wild animals that have made a home there such as the elk, mountain goats, grizzly bears are also at the risk of endangerment.

The Taj Mahal, India

One of greatest monument ever built, the Taj Mahal visited by tourists worldwide might soon have to close its door forever. In addition to the several man-made factors such as air pollution, river pollution and the decaying of the wood which supports the monument, the volume of tourist influx is also causing the destruction of the building.

And according to some reports, tourists will have an estimate of four years to visit this amazing architectural wonder.

The Great Wall of China, China 

The longest wall ever built, The Great Wall of China which stretches to more than 13,000 miles in its entirety but it might come out as a shock that only less than nine percent of the wall in good condition.

Much of the marvel of the Ming Dynasty has now disappeared at the hands of erosion and human damage from tourists who walk on it, locals who pilfer bricks for their own use, and graffiti artists who use it as a canvas. Though, restoration of the wall is underway, a lack of substantial government funding to protect the landmark remains a dauting threat to this architectural marvel.
