Discover the existential threats facing 50 unique places across the globe and the possible solutions that may save them from vanishing forever.

Learn more about endangered places across all seven continents, from natural wonders like the rainforests of Borneo and the Great Barrier Reef to cultural icons like the Giza pyramids and New York City.

Begin by understanding the background of each place, including key characteristics, history, and ecological or cultural significance, before going on to explore the problems that threaten the site. From rising sea levels and droughts to unchecked tourism, war, and civil unrest - and in many cases a combination of factors - readers will understand the complex and nuanced challenges facing these places. Each profile also includes a section on possible solutions. In some cases, these measures and programs are already being implemented, while in others individuals and governments will need to act quickly before it's too late. Curated lists of further readings at the end of each entry point readers to additional resources and act as a gateway to more in-depth study.
