World's 6 Fastest Vanishing Natural Wonders

4) Kilimanjaro Glacier


Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and the highest freestanding mountain in the world. The captivated beauty of Kilimanjaro Glacier is disappearing with the rapid disappearance of the ice. Scientists' estimate that soon Kilimanjaro glacier will be ice free as the ice started melting due to change in climate pattern. From 1912 to present, over 80 percent of the ice has been disappeared from the Kilimanjaro Glacier. It is expected that Kilimanjaro may become ice-free sometime between 2022 and 2033.

"The shrinkage and ultimate disappearance of these glaciers will create tremendous ecological and social problems in the near future," said Doug Hardy, senior researcher in the Climate Systems Research Center at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, reports CNN.
