20 October 2016 Current Affairs: The first elephant sanctuary in Latin America has opened in Brazil to provide a home for an estimated 50 circus animals from across the region.
Guida and Maia, both over 40 years old, are the first residents.
The Global Sanctuary for Elephants bought the land of 2,800 acres, for $1m (£820,000) to be paid over five years.
The area is located in the western state of Mato Grosso.
The first phase of the project will host up to six animals. The sanctuary will not be open for visitors.
