Science tourism[edit]

Do we really have to link Science tourism from this one? Sure, science is all about trying to understand the (greater) nature, but I don't think any of the museums and such listed at that article relates to the "natural attractions". Vidimian (talk) 15:20, 28 November 2015 (UTC)[reply]

I do think there are museums showing the works of famous biologists, botanists etc. Not sure if they are (yet) listed in the science tourism article, though. ϒpsilon (talk) 15:26, 28 November 2015 (UTC)[reply]
That makes sense. And on a closer look, I now see that Darwin's house is already listed over there. Vidimian (talk) 21:01, 28 November 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Alternative banner?[edit]

Could we use a more spectacular banner? /Yvwv (talk) 23:41, 5 June 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Alternative banner 1
I like this better, too. Ikan Kekek (talk) 02:16, 6 June 2016 (UTC)[reply]
I like the new one, but please say where it is on the caption. AlasdairW (talk) 20:06, 6 June 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Capitalization within titles[edit]

This seems to be such a common issue in the linked articles that maybe it's best discussed here. As a general case, I would consider phrases like "national park", "state park", "national monument" and the like to be non-proper adjective+nouns, except in the context of specific examples (e.g., Yellowstone National Park). So I would, for example, change United States National Parks to United States national parks. Can we please come to a consensus on how to deal with these kinds of titles?

Tropical climates[edit]

How is that a natural attraction? Ikan Kekek (talk) 05:42, 11 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]

I'm going to remove it. Argue here if you want to reinstate. Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:23, 13 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]
The reason I added it is that it is categorized under "Natural attractions". --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 14:56, 13 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]
It shouldn't be. Ikan Kekek (talk) 20:05, 13 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Oh. The reason I categorized it under "Natural attractions" is because Biomes and ecosystems is categorized under "Natural attractions", and "Tropical rainforests" is a biome. If you think of a better place to categorize, please say so. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 01:45, 14 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]
This may show the fallacy of putting every topic in a category. We didn't use to do that. Why can't "Biomes and ecosystems" be its own category, if a category is really needed? Ikan Kekek (talk) 05:30, 14 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]
That's probably a good idea. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 14:57, 14 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Yes Done I've created a category for the biomes and ecosystems article, which is in turn categorized under "natural attractions". Underneath "Biomes and ecosystems" are the two articles, Subtropical rainforests and Tropical rainforests. There will probably be more in the future. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 15:16, 14 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]
OK, but why is it under "natural attractions" at all? The forests are natural attractions but weather/geographic categories are not. Ikan Kekek (talk) 17:47, 14 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Perhaps it should just be its own category; perhaps it should be added as a new box to travel topics. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 03:24, 15 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Scope[edit]

Sorry to be cynical about this, but why is the Indian_zoos_and_botanical_gardens considered a natural attraction? Zoos and botanic gardens are great examples of artifice, albeit trying to catch some element of nature. Andrewssi2 (talk) 03:28, 15 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Perhaps we need a new Wildlife category for this and Biomes and ecosystems, etc. It would have to be listed at travel topics if it was a high-level category, of course. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 03:31, 15 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]
