'Flying ivory' hornbill bird gains extra protection
An Asian bird species under threat for its ivory like helmet has gained extra protection at the Cites conference in Johannesburg.
Numbers of the helmeted hornbill have plummeted in recent years as demand soared for the so-called "red ivory" that makes up its bill.
Prized in China the hornbill helmets are worth up to five times the price of elephant ivory.
The Cites meeting has now voted for extra efforts to curb illegal trade.
