Maldives
There is a concern that the Maldive Islands will be flooded by the ocean. Is it possible to prevent this from happening? The government has already been wondering how to save this beautiful land.

Maldives are a small country that consists of 1190 islands, it is located in the Indian Ocean. They are known primarily as a popular destination for tourists from all over the world.

The islands are placed in atolls formed from coral reefs. They are characterized by a beautiful landscapes and clean water. No wonder that tourism, and also fishery, are the main occupations of the locals.
Despite its popularity, nature cannot be fooled. As experts estimate, in a few decades these islands may disappear. Global warming is the reason. The increase in global temperatures result in rising sea level. As a result, there is the risk that many lands will be flooded.

In this beach stingray feeding experience is one of the magic of Maldives as shark watching
to enhance this spectacle of nature, baby Maldives sharks swim amongst the stingrays.
