Five wonders of mother nature

The Giant Blue Hole-Belize

The Giant Blue Hole-Belize

The Giant Blue Hole-Belize:
The giant blue hole is a large submarine sinkhole off the coast of Belize(Central America). It lies near the center of lighthouse reef 70km away from the mainland and Belize city. The hole is circular in shape,over 300 meters across and 124 meters deep. It was formed during several episodes of Qeatermary glaciation when sea levels were much lower. The formations have taken place 155000, 66000, 60000 and 15000 years ago. Even nature takes its time to create a masterpiece!

The Moeraki Boulder

The Moeraki Boulder

The Moeraki Boulder:
The Moeraki Boulders are a big attraction, found on Koekohe Beach near Moeraki on New Zealand’s coast. The huge, gray, spherical stones formed in sediment on the sea floor 60 million years ago and were revealed by shoreline erosion. The boulders, some of which stand alone and some in clusters, can weigh several tons and measure 10 feet across. Nature is really amazing.

Where two water bodies meet but doesn't mix

Where two water bodies meet but doesn’t mix

Where two water bodies meet but doesn’t mix:
These two water bodies were merging to the gulf of Alaska. But they didn’t mix like normally. They just created a foam on the meeting junction. This happens because of one of the water is the result of melting gleciers of fresh water and other with high salt, making the two water having different density, making it hard to mix together.

Virunga Volcanoes

Virunga Volcanoes

Virunga Volcanoes:
Africa’s Green and Fiery Heart, Virunga Mountains are a chain of volcanoes in East Africa. Straddling the borders between Rwanda, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo(DRC), the eight-volcano chain is one of Earth’s most active volcanic regions and a veritable salad bowl for mountain gorillas, chimpanzees, elephants, and other wildlife. The Virunga Mountains are home of the critically endangered mountain gorilla, listed on the IUCN Red List of Endangered Species due to habitat loss, poaching, disease, and war (Butynski et al. 2003).
