In Indonesia, elephant dung has become a winning hit with tourists looking to buy an unusual souvenier.

Bali's Safari and Marine Park is home to Indonesia's first elephant poo paper factory, where animal waste is turned into books and writing paper.

The factory is open to the public who can get involved in the process and see how the huge amount of dung produced every day, can be recycled into a new product.

Presenter: Emma Younger

Speaker: Wendy Husband from the Bali Safari and Marine Park
