17 Incredible Places That May Disappear Soon

Glacier National Park, Montana, US

The Glacier National park had over 100 glaciers when it was established in 1910. In 2015, only 26 could be officially designated as active glaciers, as per the U.S. Geological Survey.

Rapid climate change resulting in snow avalanches and variations in the thickness of ice and dynamics of ice flow have caused the glaciers to shrink. If this continues, researchers predict there will be no glaciers left in the park by 2030.
