Pictures of Protected Parks and Marine Areas Across the World

While it seems that wetlands, woodland areas, rain forests, deserts and other large areas of natural terrain are being gobbled up by man and our lust for money, this isn’t always the case. Many areas of our world, around 15% is protected from any man-made devastation. This equated to over 160,000 places on Earth that are protected. The good news is these efforts to preserve our planet and its creatures is paying off by slowing the extinction rate of many species of life and in some cases has reversed the trend. So I guess we sometimes can see the forest for the trees and then go about protecting it as best can.
