South African orphanage opens for baby rhinos

Calves orphaned by poachers are now in a secret location dedicated to giving them a second chance at life.

    Rhino populations have seen a 90 per cent decline since the 1970's.

    Poachers still kill hundreds of the endangered species every year, but now there is new hope for calves left behind.

    A unique orphanage has opened in a secret location in South Africa to ensure the inhabitants best chance of survival, from where Al Jazeera's Tania Page has sent us this report.
