Nepal drains dangerous Everest lake 尼泊尔放干珠穆朗玛峰附近地区湖泊
New home for thousands of baby turtles 成千上万只幼龟被放归秘鲁亚马逊雨林
Nepal's army has finished draining a dangerous lake near Mount Everest. Officials say it's the highest drainage project of its kind in the world. The equipment was airlifted up to 5,000 metres for the work. It's vital to protect communities downstream and prevent flooding. Scientists say global warming makes glaciers melt fast and lakes get filled up.
Thousands of baby Taricaya turtles have been released into the Peruvian Amazon. The move is part of an effort to save them from extinction after extensive logging and development in the rainforest.
