Abstract:

Iguazu National Park (Brazil/Argentina) - Iguazu Falls, one of the three largest waterfalls in the world, throws up dense clouds of vapor and sends out a thunderous roar through the surrounding jungle. The Iguazu Falls, which lies on the border between Brazil and Argentina, is one of largest waterfalls in the world, with a total of 270 separate cascades stretched across an area three kilometers long. The "water cycle" that the waterfall creates enables a large number of rare plants and animals to live and grow in the surrounding jungle environment.

Fraser Island (Australia) - Fraser Island, the world's largest sand island, is a paradise covered in lush greenery that is home to a wide variety of mammals and rare wild birds. Fraser Island measures 123 kilometers north to south, making it the world's largest sand island. The island, which was created over an 800,000 year period, has a vast tropical rainforest and is a paradisiacal environment for the wild birds and mammals that inhabit it. The island is dotted with more than 40 sand dune lakes, and has over 50 rivers and streams, and these all help to create the island's beautiful natural environment.
