The carcasses of 87 elephants, killed and stripped of their tusks by poachers, have been discovered near a wildlife sanctuary in Botswana, a charity says.

The “fresh and recent” remains were discovered close to the protected Okavango Delta wildlife sanctuary by the Elephants Without Borders, which conducted an aerial survey for the Botswana government. 

The conservation charity said the “alarming rate” of poaching deaths was the biggest seen anywhere in Africa.
