As selfies continue to become popular (or move towards the category of being cliché), Alex Chacon comes up with an amazing 3-minute video clip. With a GoPro on a stick, this traveler compiled selfies taken over a period of 600 days of his travel in 36 countries all around the world. Chacon traveled over 125,946 miles with the help of 5 motorcycles.

Naming his video “Around the World in 360° Degrees – 3 Year Epic Selfie”, this man actually takes it to an epic level.

Renowned conservation biologist Raghu Chundawat on Friday said tourists travelling in large numbers to the forests in India is a threat to the wildlife and ecosystem as most of the tourists are “not responsible”.

Speaking on the sidelines of “TOFTigers Sustaining the Wildlife”, Chundawat said: “Mass tourism generates huge amounts of money to governments, but at the same time it also has negative impacts and threat to the wildlife and ecosystem of the forests.”

“Now there is a rapid increase of wildlife-based mass tourism specially on the weekends… This ruins the habitat, as some visitors throw garbage which consist more of plastic.”

Chundawat’s pioneering 10-year research on the Panna tigers was immortalised by BBC in the documentary — “Tigers of the Emerald Forest”.
