5 Most Fascinating Wildlife Destinations In The World
1. Galápagos Islands
'Intriguing' is such an understated description for the wildlife creatures that inhabit the Galápagos Islands, an archipelago of volcanic islands nestled on either side of the Equator in the Pacific Ocean, near Ecuador.
Word has it that Charles Darwin came up with his theory of evolution at this very place. It isn't difficult to see why because the Galápagos Islands is an absolute gem known for its unique wildlife that isn't found anywhere else on earth. To name a few, we've got Galápagos fur seals, marine iguanas, flightless cormorants, Galápagos penguins, etc.
2. Amazon Rainforest
When it comes to amazing wildlife, the Amazon Rainforest that is home to more than 30% of the entire world's wildlife is a quintessential wildlife haven that anyone who loves being out and about in the company of animals has to visit at least once in a lifetime. From vibrant macaws, river otters, giant anteaters and jaguars to pink dolphins, anacondas and glass frogs, the diverse array of animals that you will encounter there is sure to give you an unforgettable holiday experience.
Did you know that Namibia was the first country in the world to initiate and weave the protection of its environment into its constitution? Especially committed to protecting endangered species of animals like the black rhino and cheetah, its efforts to set aside more than 20 national parks and reserves back in the day have not been in vain as their numbers have since increased.
Ecotourism is really popular amongst people who want to catch a glimpse of desert elephants, lions, zebras, springboks, cheetahs, black rhinos and other wildlife natives of Namibia without ruining the Namibian wildlife habitat.
4. Yellowstone National Park
Whether you visit Yellowstone National Park in winter or summer, the fact remains that this place has the biggest concentration of observable wildlife in the lower 48 states in the United States. Some highly popular wildlife that visitors to the park are excited to see include grizzly bears, wolves, elk, badgers, bison, foxes, otters, and moose. There are deers and bighorn sheep there, too!
5. Antarctica And The North Pole
The thought of global warming melting away the ice ever so rapidly at Antarctica and the North Pole breaks my heart. What will happen to our planet's pristine icy wilderness where the penguins, seals, whales, albatrosses, reindeers, polar bears, snowy owls, white hares, walruses, Arctic foxes and other animals live? For a truly wondrous wildlife observation experience in the bitter cold, be sure to make your way down south or up north while you still can. I'm saving money to get to these places, too.
