several major spots around the world due to changing environment, bad management and over-exposure.
At the top of the list is Mount Kilimanjaro, the 19,340-foot-high African behemoth, whose glaciers are melting at super speed. (i.e. global warming). Similarly, the polar bears of the Hudson Bay are experiencing a loss of habitat, that is, a loss of sea ice, which they depend on for getting around and where they find seals to eat.
Another site in danger are the Ancient Egyptian archaeological sites on the west bank of the Nile in Luxor, which are threatened by frequent flash flooding and the Egyptian government's plan to attract 10 million visitors to Luxor annually by 2010, a major and potentially dangerous increase.
I can think of other places also in danger. Just take a visit to Yosemite valley in the summer, when hordes of people camp out and make the valley like Disneyland. These are huge and important issues, and I confess I’d like to see a documentary about this topic.
