World Elephant Day was established on August 12, 2012 to call on people to fight illegal hunting and protect elephant habitats. There'll be a birthday celebration for baby elephant Yang Niu, born with symptoms of heart failure in southwest China's Yunnan Province. More than 10 other wild Asian elephants rescued for different reasons, like exploitation by drug traffickers, could be seen there. Join CGTN to get close to the charming elephants and know more about the Asian elephants' survival situation in China.
