Amazing Places in the World That Are Disappearing

Maldives 1 of 16

Climate change and other affects, mostly by humans, are causing some of the most amazing and beautiful places in the world to disappear. If you want to see them before they are gone, you have to act fast!

The Maldives is an island nation located south of Sri Lanka in the Indian Ocean. It is the lowest lying country on Earth with an average elevation of just 5 feet above sea level, which is causing problems as sea levels are rising. It could be completely gone in the next 100 years, something the government is well aware of as they have been busy buying up land in other countries to move its citizens to when the situation gets bad enough for evacuation.
