The Maldives, one of the 'top 10 endangered attractions in the world' by

The Maldives []

The Maldives is an island nation in the Indian Ocean consisting of about 1,200 islands. Covering an area of 300 square kilometers, it is the smallest country in Asia. With an average ground level of 1.5 meters (4.9 feet) above sea level, it is the planet's lowest country. Rich in coral reefs and endangered fish, the Maldives makes for the perfect holiday and diving destination. However, the sea level in the area rises some 3.5 inches every year due to global warming. Many atolls in the area have already permanently disappeared from the world map. It is estimated that this "Last Paradise on Earth" will no longer be inhabitable in another 100 years.
