The untouched trio of the lost world

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 9 November 2018 | Views [93]

‘Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.’ - T.S. Eliot.

Exploration and travel can do wonderful things for a person. It can broaden your perspectives on various cultures, or it can take your breath away with a feat of natural beauty. However, humans have a tendency to destroy whatever they discover, whether through industry or neglect. And, given our ability to get around quicker and further than ever before, there are less and less mysteries left in the modern world, think about it - if you went  far enough back in time, you’d find our ancestors staring at the ocean as we do to space. Below are ten areas of the world that are unsullied and unexplored, maintaining their natural aesthetic and existing without a nearby starbucks.

Vale do Javari - Brazil

Home to over 15 amazonian tribes, this area of the amazon rainforest is protected by federal law in order to maintain the tribes’ right to seclusion and non interference. This is not solely a matter of leaving the tribes alone for cultural reasons, but often members of tribes in rainforests have not built up the same immunities to illness that others have, simply because they haven’t been exposed to them. This means that contact with us can be fatal given that they do not have the same medical understanding that we do.

Cape Melville - Australia

Although this is only around 900 miles away from Brisbane, one of Australia’s main cities, this area of rainforest may as well be on the moon as far as most people are concerned. The area is pretty much only accessible by helicopter, meaning that any photos you might want for your social media accounts would have to come from drone surveillance though there are still areas that remain completely undiscovered. Three completely new species of animal have been found there since 2013 including the; leaf-tailed gecko, blotched boulder frog and shade skink.

Lena River Delta - Russia

The Lena River Delta is located in the Sakha Republic, Russia. It is part of the arctic circle as is home to some of the most extreme conditions in the world, hence it’s lack of habitation. Average temperatures in January can be as low as -46 degrees fahrenheit, making it an inhospitable environment for most animals. The area has been unfortunately trounced with mining over the years but there are still areas that are untouched and a breeding ground for wildlife such as reindeer. The area is protected by the Lena River wildlife society meaning that the the variety of animal life will be left to live as nature intended.
