World's 6 Fastest Vanishing Natural Wonders

Bangalore: "In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous," said Aristotle. And it's true! The world is abundant with beauties of nature. Earth has many wonders from enormous forests to palm fringed islands. But, imagine if the gifts of nature like coral reefs, schools of tropical fishes and the icy glaciers disappeared? Human interventions are putting many natural wonders in danger. But before these natural wonders become a thing of the past, one must visit them and get engulfed in its beauty.

1) Great Barrier Reef


The Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral reef system in the world that houses more than 2900 individual reefs and 900 islands spread over 2600 kilometres. This magnificent reef is situated in the Coral Sea, off the coast of Queensland in Australia.

Great Barrier Reef is the famous coral ecosystem of Australia that is approximately the size of Japan, perhaps disappear by 2030. According to the Australian Conservation Foundation, the increasing temperature of 3-5 degrees Fahrenheit in the ocean combined with acidic water could kill 97 percent of these exotic reefs. It is tagged as one of the seven natural wonders of the world by CNN. Besides, the reef has lost half of its coral cover since 1985, according to a study by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences published in October 2012, reports Travel + Leisure.
