CGTN published this video item, entitled “Wayward elephant herd in Yunnan: Icon of wildlife protection?” – below is their description.
Not all who wander are lost. That’s true for a herd of wild Asian elephants that departed from its forest home in China’s Xishuangbanna National Nature Reserve. They have been marching north, creating a social media buzz, eating and trampling crops, and causing millions of dollars’ worth of damage. Authorities have blocked traffic on roads while the elephants crossed, setting up barriers and using food as bait to try to keep them away from Kunming and other populated areas to keep both elephants and humans safe. What’s fueling the global sensation over the story and how can we help bring these elephants back home?CGTN YouTube Channel
