Yao Ming travels to Africa for the first time to document the poaching crisis facing the continent’s elephants and rhinos.

The 31-year-old Chinese retired basketball player is using his star power, especially in China, to help WildAid bring attention to the hunting of rhino and elephants for horns and ivory.
