Kenyan sanctuary raises orphaned baby elephants

As many as 30,000 adult elephants are killed every year for their tusks, despite an international ban on the ivory trade.

But one Kenyan sanctuary near Nairobi is working hard to save orphaned elephants who have lost their mothers to poaching. Our colleagues at France 2 report, with FRANCE 24's James Vasina.
