Balandra Beach is located in La Paz, México. In 2008, it became a natural protected area after a determined group of locals, Colectivo Balandra, fighted to save the beach from developers. The rest of the beaches of La Paz had already been modified with several constructions and installations. Luckily, they managed to collect 18,440 signatures to protect the area. Balandra is a paradise beach with flawless white sand, turquoise crystalline water, and a unique and diverse ecosystem where rare and endangered species can be found.
Located in South Florida, the Everglades is the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States. It is internationally known for its extraordinary wildlife and for being home to many threatened and endangered species, such as the Florida panther, the West Indian manatee, or the bottlenose dolphin. One of the main problems threatening the Everglades are the invasive species, appearing due to the alteration of water flows and interruption in the natural pattern of wildlifes. Some of these harmful invasive species are the Burmese python, Nyle monitors, and Cuban tree frogs. In 2000, a restoration plan was approved by the government to help restore, protect, and preserve the Everglades.
Diskobay is located on the west coast of Greenland. It is a region renowned for its imposing glaciers and glistening icebergs. The Ilulissat Icefjord is located in this area, and in 2004, it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It forms a wide, iceberg-packed channel that leads to the Jacobshavn Glacier, one of the most active glaciers in the world. Besides, it is famous for being home to several whale species, among many other animals such as seals, Arctic foxes, and ptarmigan. The Diskobay area, as well as its species and ecosystems, are protected and conserved by the government.
