About the Book

Our Natural World Heritage by Christopher Woods, explores 50 of the 257 World Heritage Sites. With biodiversity as his primary focus, Woods highlights concerns about negative human behavior that is devastating to our future.

“The way we see the world shapes the way we treat it,” goes an excerpt from a longer quote by David Suzuki, as referenced by the author. I think this is an accurate statement to reflect what we’re experiencing now all around the world. 

Throughout his journey, Woods calls out plants and animals native to the many regions he visits. From the conifers of New Zealand to the waters of Belize and epic glaciers of Iceland, he takes us across varying terrains always highlighting the urgency of our ever-changing climate through bright, beautiful photos and interesting facts. Our Natural World Heritage is a great introduction to climate change for any explorer, big or small.

Of course, this book will teach kids about far more than just plants and animals. It also shares influential stories of historical cultures like the Aboriginal people of Australia who helped shape this island nation more than 400,000 years ago. 

The book and subject matter are ideal for teen readers, but younger kids may also enjoy it at a slower pace, one section at a time. However you choose to jump in, Our Natural World Heritage is the perfect read for nature lovers, geography buffs, and budding scientists. So which one are you?

Travel plays such an important role in our lives. It has the ability to change us for the better. It’s an experiential education that teaches us how to feel, think, act, and react in positive ways. Travel fosters creativity, builds confidence, and teaches us all to be more tolerant. My own kids benefit from travel every time we hit the open road. No amount of money can buy those life lessons.

Travelnitch is inspiring the next generation of explorers. We believe travel is a wonderful way to ignite the imagination and get kids excited about the world. However, we need your help to make this possible. Please spread the word and support our efforts to raise citizens of the world. Let’s go on this adventure together!
