10 Places That Will Disappear During Your Lifetime

There are several beautiful places to visit on everyone’s bucket list. But there might not be enough time left to be able to visit some and we suggest you book your tickets ASAP. Here’s a list of 10 beautiful places that will disappear while you’re alive.

10. The Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is home to at least 1600 species of fish, 130 types of sharks and rays, and more than 30 species of whales and dolphins. It’s one of the most complex ecosystems on the planet but according to scientists, it won’t last long. A combination of warming ocean temperatures, coastal development, and agricultural runoff causes irreversible damage to the reef. Half of the reef has already disappeared and after 2030, it might just stop existing.

9. Seychelles

The islands of Seychelles, off the coast of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean area a popular tourist spot. But water level rise due to global warming might completely drown the 115 islands. Even fi the ocean rises as little as 91cm, the islands’ population of at least 90,000 will be rendered homeless and the Seychelles might be gone in 50 to 100 years.

8. The Great Wall of China

One of the ‘SevenWonders Of The World,’ the Great Wall of China stretches from Shanhaiguan on the east coast to the Jiayuguan edge of the Gobi desert. Natural erosion, damage from the tourists and villagers stealing bricks might result in the wall disappearing in about 20 years. A third of the wall has already disappeared.

7. Kiribati 

Kiribati is a beautiful island nation in the central Pacific ocean where you can scuba ie and birdwatch. The only problem is that it lies only 1.8 meters above the sea level. That why it is predicted that tech Kiribati may disappear in a decade or so. The government has several times urged the inhabitants to leave and settle somewhere else.
