Ambitious plans for Abidjan zoo

Abidjan Zoo, home to some of the most endangered species on the planet, is embarking on an ambitious project to become a centre of conservation excellence in West Africa.  

The zoo, in the heart of Ivory Coast’s economic capital, almost collapsed during the country’s recent civil conflict.  More than a quarter of the animals died of starvation. 

And many of those who survived were left severely malnourished.  The BBC’s Tamasin Ford reports.
