'An ancient great sharks tooth has been stolen from a world heritage site in Austalia.
The Fossil which was not available to be viewed by tourists is believed to have come from the megalodon species that died 2.6 million years ago.'
'Three European tourists expelled from UNESCO World Heritage Site 'Macchu Picchu' over nude pictures.
Articles like the ones mentioned above appear on social media and newspapers drawing the attention of people all over the world to the vulnerability of heritage sites.
These sites need to be taken care of, protected, and kept unharmed from the public. But what if they are destroyed like the Taj Mahal? It is turning greyish due to the chemical reaction on the Marble, inflicted on it by the Mathura Refinery located close by.
