File this under “Disappearing Destinations.” Not to be an alarmist, but endangered species are still endangered, glaciers are melting, and sea levels are rising. While this might not impact our daily lives, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports that many of our “ecologically sensitive” places remain vulnerable. With that in mind, these are the natural wonders that you should see this year, while you still can.

1.  Glacier National Park, USA


Montana’s Glacier National Park could very well be glacier-free before 2030 because of warmer weather and a change in the snowfall. Experts report there were 150 glaciers in 1900. Today there are only 25. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service put the meltwater lednian stonefly and western glacier stonefly on the Endangered Species List in 2019. If you want to check out the glaciers, the popular Going-to-the-Sun Road, or even go rafting on the Flathead River, now is the time.

2.  Tuvalu, South Pacific 

The little country of Tuvalu is located between Hawaii and Australia. The nine islands cover 10 untouched square miles of stunning coral reefs and lovely lagoons that are seen by only the most intent adventurers. Sea levels have risen to the point where the highest point here is only a couple of meters above sea level. Indeed, two of the nine isles are about to go under, and experts predict Tuvalu will be uninhabitable in 50 years.
