Fascinating Destinations for Wildlife Fanatics

The world is filled with wonders. If you are someone who has a penchant for wildlife and all its glory, you are definitely a wildlife fanatic. Seeing and observing animals in their natural and unadulterated habitat are simply a marvellous sight. You cannot be just satisfied here in Singapore. There is a world out there. Go out and see it.

If you have to travel the world, do it. There are many remarkable wildlife destinations that you can consider. Here are some:

Galapagos Islands
Your first destination should be the ever-famous Galapagos Islands. Many wildlife fanatics enjoyed the island because of its intriguing wildlife creatures. There are many that inhabit the islands and the fact that it is where Charles Darwin came up with Theory of Evolution is something remarkable.

Namibia
Not all people know about Namibia and for those who know it, are afraid to go there. You have to know that Namibia is the first country to include wildlife protection in its constitution. Here, you will see endangered species like cheetah and black rhino. The country has at least twenty national parks and the numbers have grown since. You will see other animals too like lions, elephants, zebra and springboks.

The Amazon Rainforest
Your wildlife experience will never be complete without going to Amazon Rainforest. The Amazon is in fact home to more than thirty per cent of the world’s wildlife. You have to visit this place at least once in your life. It is home to otters, macaws, pink dolphins, anacondas, frogs, jaguars, anteaters and many more.

Antarctica and the North Pole
If you want to witness the icy wilderness, you have to go to Antarctica. However, some habitats are destroyed because of the melting of the ice. That is truly a heartbreaker. Antarctica and The North Pole is home to many animals like seals, penguins, albatross, whale, reindeers, owls, polar bears, walruses and foxes.

Yellowstone National Park
Yellowstone is also a good place to get started because it has the largest concentration of wildlife animals in all of the United States. There you will see wolves, grizzly bears, bison, badgers, moose, bighorn sheep, deer and otters among others.

What are you waiting for? Start planning and packing. Remember that climate change is taking a toll on wildlife. It means that sooner their habitats will be naught. Observe while you still can at the same time help to protect it. That is the least thing that you can do.
