Every morning, Buro brings you an around-the-world wrap-up of what you need to know

1. A tiny endangered dolphin has died in a quest for the ultimate selfie
It's one of the smallest and rarest dolphins in the world, but that didn't stop tourists snatching a Franciscan dolphin from the surf at a beach in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in order to take photos with it. Images show two tiny dolphins being passed around a crowd of smartphone-toting beachgoers - with one final image showing one of the dolphins left on the sand to die. The Argentine Wildlife Foundation has issued a public warning to educate the public and prevent future incidents.

2. 'Fake' Rolexes given to Australian politicians could have been bugged
Turns out it's not just the fashion police who are worried about fake luxury goods, with former Defence Minister and Labor frontbencher Joel Fitzgibbon revealing that all gifts to politicians coming out of China are routinely checked for bugs. Of particular concern are Rolex watches given to Tony Abbott, Stuart Robert and Ian Macfarlane by Chinese billionaire Li Ruipeng in June 2013, which are said to have never been checked. The Guardian reports there are widespread fears in the Australian intelligence community that China is targeting Australian MPs.

3. The Pope calls Donald Trump "not Christian" - and Trump fights back
Kanye and Tay-Tay have got nothing on this unlikely feud, in which Pope Francis has taken aim at Trump, saying: "A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian." The Pope was asked for his views on Trump's immigration policy.  In response, Trump has publicly called the Pope "disgraceful."

4. Fact: Millennials drink more than their parents
According to an American report conducted by the Wine Market Council, millennials (that's people aged between 21-38 for the purposes of this study) drank more wine than any other generation in 2015. That's 42 per cent of all the wine drunk in the US last year. We hate to think how the numbers would stack up on this side of the equator... 

5. Transgender model Andreja Pejic has landed her first cover as a woman
The Melbourne-raised super appears on the March 2016 cover of Marie Claire Spain, shot by Pablo Zamora and styled by Jennifer Bauser. Andreja made international headlines - and changed the fashion industry forever - when she first broke onto the scene and was the first transgender model to land a spread in American Vogue in April last year.
