It’s nearly the end of the year and there have been several highs and lows around the globe. New World Heritage sites and breathtaking drone photography continues to show us just how beautiful our world truly is. All the while there have been more hardships for animals and the environment this year and worrying reports which ask the difficult questions about climate change and our future.

Ecophiles takes a look at what happened in culture, the environment, and travel for your 2017 year in review.
