World Ocean Day 2021: This is how climate change may alter 10 of the world's natural wonders

Dryer climates, stronger storms and rising sea levels could destroy the sites.

Natural wonders around the world may be altered forever -- or even cease to exist -- if global temperatures continue to rise.

Climate change is contributing to rising sea levels and more intense weather events, which will not only leave humans and landscapes vulnerable but also some of the world's treasures as well.

Norway-based outdoor guide company Outforia used research and predictions from a plethora of published scientific papers to illustrate what could happen to 10 beloved landmarks if drastic measures are not soon taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The company chose which landmarks to feature based on sites that mean "a lot to a lot of different people," Carl Borg, founder of Outforia, told ABC News.

The deterioration of any of the landmarks would be a "great loss," both for humans who will no longer be able to experience the wonders and for the ecosystems and species that depend on the sites for survival, Borg said.
