The Galapagos Islands
Named after the type of tortoises that inhibit the island, the Galapagos already sees nearly 100,000 tourists each year. The rapid rise in tourism in the region is quickly changing its economic landscape, and within the next few years, this beautiful isolated island will transform into just another populated land mass.
Glacier National Park
In 1850, the Glacier National Park in Montana would allow a tourist to witness the majesty of 150 glaciers in one location. The number of glaciers you are likely to see when you visit the park now is down to 25. Do you want to guess how many glaciers will be left in just 15 more years?
