500 Places to See Before They Disappear enables passionate travelers and the eco-conscious to learn about and plan a visit to see rare cultural, historic, and natural places before they are irrevocably altered or even gone forever. Here are one-of-a-kind landscapes, fragile ecosystems, rare bird habitats, places to see the last remaining species of big game in the wild, cityscapes in peril, vanishing cultural kitsch, petroglyphs, and more—500 thoughtfully-chosen treasures that will inspire and enlighten travelers of all ages.

Each entry explains why it’s been included, gives its history, the nature of the threat against it, brief practical information on how to visit, and what visitors can to do protect it. A Geographical Index allows travelers to locate attractions across the world. Photos throughout the book help bring destinations to life.

From the Publisher:
Offers a richly illustrated survey of endangered and fragile historical, cultural, and natural destinations around the globe, with profiles of five hundred different sites, ranging from the prehistoric paintings of Lascaux, France, to a hurricane-ravaged New Orleans, assessing the impact of traveling to these vulnerable locales and furnishing tips on trip planning, accommodations, and local services. Original.
