Kazakh antelope facing extinction

Robin Forestier-Walker reports on efforts to protect one of the world's most endangered animals.

    The Saiga antelope, which lives on the vast steppes of Central Asia, is one of the world's most endangered animals.

    Since the end of the Soviet Union, its numbers have collapsed, with thousands of Saiga killed by poachers who value its horns, skin and meat.
