Landmarks That Have Been Destroyed By Tourists

Public Restroom


Uluru (aka Ayer’s Rock) in Australia has become a literal wasteland thanks to millions of international tourists with no means of properly relieving themselves. Over the years, the majestic rock has become subjected to enough excrement to kill off an entire fairy shrimp species that once inhabited the rock’s small pools of water. The rock is also considered a sacred site for the Indigenous Anangu people whose culture states individuals must take ownership of the actions, both right and wrong.
