How to make paper from elephant poo

The Sumatran elephants at Taman Safari in Indonesia produce a lot of poo, about 2.5 tonnes of it every day.

Keepers there have come up with an interesting way of recycling it by turning it into paper.

Elephant dung contains lots of undigested fibres which can be reused.

They sell the poo paper in the gift shop and say it is a good because it is eco friendly and reminds people about elephant conservation.

Watch it being made.
