Visit Natural Wonders Before It's Too Late

The first comprehensive report on climate change warns that 300,000 people are killed each year by the "silent crisis," and the effects of global warming are supposed to get significantly worse by 2030. In London, CNN's Becky Anderson reported that people are migrating to previously uninhabitable areas, which presents a major security risk and should be addressed by the United Nations Security Council. While these issues are currently being worked out, perhaps we should start planning more vacations to pristine spots for a nature vacation?

Australia is considered most vulnerable to the effects of climate change, and years of rising temperatures and decreasing rainfall have been attributed to Australia's severe droughts. It sounds like we need to travel to Australia for some sightseeing, and to understand the effects of climate change firsthand. Who knows? You might end up donating to countries in need of funds to adapt to climate changes: besides Australia, the Middle East, Central Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, and Southeast Asia are all in danger.

On your Australian travels, consider swinging by the Great Barrier Reef to experience an amazing natural wonder. Hayman is located between the northeastern coast of Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef, and it is situated by two white-sand beaches and a network of scenic gardens and walk areas. Just some of the relaxing activities at one of Australia's most stunning locations include parasailing, snorkeling, fishing, diving, tennis, and scuba diving, but don't forget that there are lots of resort activities at Hayman as well. Another spot that's now world-renown for ecotourism is the Voyages Longitude 131°, set on a sand dune near the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Since only 30 guests stay at Voyages Longitude 131 at one time, you'll feel like you're all alone in Australia's magnificent outback.

Dreaming of these untouched areas isn't enough. Head to your dream spots before your time runs out!
