Way to go, geocachers! As of now, there are officially 3 million active geocaches hidden on Planet Earth.*
This is a big moment in geocaching history. What’s even more amazing is that it happened because of a collective effort by millions of people. They speak different languages and live in different countries, but all share one thing in common: geocaching.
