As we travel more and more, so do places suffer. Unthinking and irresponsible tourists, development and the environmental crisis are some of the major causes of the destruction of the world’s marvels. As everyone rushes to see these beautiful places and wonders, they become even more endangered. So when you visit these places, make sure that while enjoying the beautiful view, you are responsible enough not to contribute to their endangerment.

Kruger National Park in South Africa

During 2006, there were only less than 50, 000 lions remaining—a far cry from the 200, 000 three decades ago. Ranchers kill them because they eat the livestock, while poachers hunt them for profit. Unfortunately, even those that are staying in national parks are also suffering due to illnesses. When there is not enough funding the animals naturally become the first victims, and corruption among officials does not help the matter.
