There are many beautiful places in the world, but sadly, some of these places are slowly diminishing. There are a few reasons why, partly due to funding, and partly due to the lack of respect the places receive. It’s best to visit these places before they are gone forever! AurTravel can assist you in visiting one of these endangered places.
The Maldives: Many Islands to Explore
The Maldives is a very popular tourist destination that includes bungalows over the crystal clear water and underwater restaurants. However, the water is getting higher and higher and the band of over 1,200 islands could soon be underwater. The Maldives are a great destination, as there are many islands and atolls to explore. There are many things to do in the Maldives, like snorkeling among the reef, relaxing on the beach, and shopping at the markets.
Venice: The Heart of Italy
Venice, Italy is a great place to visit for history lovers as well as families and couples. That being said, the beautiful Venice is endangered. There are a lot of things to do in Venice. For example: visiting St. Mark’s Basilica, Doges Palace, The Bridge of Sighs, and the Gallerie dell’Accademia. There are also many opportunities to ride in a gondola in one of the many canals, which is fun for all ages. The water level in Venice is increasing, so unfortunately, the strand of islands will be underwater in the years to come.
Madagascar: Forests and Greenery Everywhere
Forests in Madagascar are threatened by the constant logging and burning which is quickly destroying the resources. The majority of the greenery and botanicals in Madagascar are native to the land. Most of them have never been studied before. Madagascar is a great place that is rich with history, architecture, and culture. There are many palaces and churches to visit. The Ranomafana National Park is Madagascar’s most familiar park. This park has more wildlife the farther you go from the tourist stops. Another great park to visit is the Isalo National Park, which is home to some of the most breathtaking scenery as well as being a sacred place for the Bara tribe.
Florida Everglades: National Park Treasure
Florida’s infamous Everglades are home to many animals and wetlands. The wetlands are at risk by pollution from farming as well as invasive species. The size of the Everglades is diminishing quickly, and is now an endangered place. The national park is only about half the size as it was 100 years ago. There are lots of fun things to do at the Florida Everglades. Some activities include gator and mangrove tours, the Waterway Trail, and the Everglades Safari Park. The Everglades National Park is in close proximity to the Miami, Florida area.
