A new report says climate change could cause half of the world's beaches to disappear by the end of the century.
According to the journal "Nature Climate Change," rising sea-levels could cause erosion, which would swallow the beaches.
The report says beaches all over the world could see the shoreline pushed back by 300 feet.
Beaches on the U.S. east coast, South Asia and Central Europe are all included.
