Every day, sad news appears about the impact that man and his development have on the environment and on the preservation of historical sites. The shadow of man is increasingly elongated as it passes through the planet and mass tourism also causes acclaimed places to end up modifying their natural habitat and even indigenous cultures lose their values for money.
Frommer's recently published the book entitled 500 places to visit before they disappear.
Through its pages, the book focuses on fragile ecosystems, places inhabited by animals in danger of extinction, landscapes in process of transformation due to climate change and historical sites whose influx is endangered due to mass tourism.
Perhaps this book further emphasizes the impact on these places that should remain silent and who knows, if instead of writing this post, it would have been best to keep the secret jealously. In any case, knowledge does not take place and probably if we all exercise responsible tourism, many of these places can be visited by our grandchildren.
