    UNESCO has joined Brazil's efforts to salvage the remaining artefacts at the National Museum.

    The site was gutted by a huge fire earlier this month.

    Experts say it could take at least a decade to restore what's left.

    Conservationists say other heritage sites in the country are also at risk from a lack of funding.
