Ibera wetlands ( Esteros del Iberá, Argentina):

 

This wildlife area, located in the north eastern part of Argentina, is experiencing a real ecological revival. Esteros del Iberá, is made up of swamps, peat bog, lagoons and lakes, covering over 15,000 sq km, or 5,800 sq miles. what's more is that the landscape is changing constantly, with new lagoons and swamps forming as other change, or dry out, making it a lively scenery of pristine and untouched wildlife, and a very well sought after destination for wildlife enthusiasts, and scientific researchers. Although eclipsed by the more prominent Patagonia, or the bigger Pantanal (Brasil), Ibera wetlands is teaming with fauna, 300 species of birds, 85 species of mammals and more; Jaguars, pampa deer, otters, capybaras, giant anteaters are among the species to call this ecosystem home... Not to mention the rich flora. This ecological revival is only expanding, thanks to the hard work of many enthusiast, supported by NGOs and under protection as a Natural Provincial Reserve. There are also plans to make it a national park.

 Madagascar( Africa):

 

This island nation, on the east cost of Africa, surrounded by Indian ocean waters, is becoming once again, a popular destination for tourists. With beaches to rival any in the world, jungles, and reef, the island has many wildlife species that exist nowhere else in the world. Lemurs, fossa, chameleons and more. The uniqueness of its ecology extends to plants as well, with 80 % of its plants only found on the island. The most known of which is the big-trunk baobabs. Tsingy de Bemaraha is the largest reserve on the island and it a UNESCO world heritage.

There are organised tours that combine most of the island natural sites and are budget friendly.

 

Barrier reefs:

 

The El Nino and other reasons caused the rise in water temperature which has for the last few years induced a decline in this natural wonder off the cost of Australia. The largest living organism is suffering from the effects of bleaching. This resilient coral formation is still however, home to spectacular marine life, and offers one of the world's rarest scuba diving experiences. Day-trips are offered almost in every major shore town off the Pacific coast of Queensland, Australia.

many programs allow for tourists, and wildlife enthusiast to help with the conservation effort, and make for a very pleasant experience, especially for families.
