Youth rights
They might be underage, but they know their rights.
Close Up investigates what young people can do without parental consent?
Jehan Casinader visits a Wellington high school to see what young people have to say about their rights, and their right to privacy.

Big problem
Time is running out for Mila, the former circus elephant which accidentally killed the woman who tried to give her a new life. The options are stark - unless Franklin Zoo can raise $1.5 million to relocate Mila the elephant will have to be put down.
Spearheading the campaign is the sister of vet Helen Schofield who was killed tending to Mila but her sister is determined to fulfil Helen's legacy.
If you want to help Franklin Zoo get Mila trained to fly to an outdoor sanctuary in California, go to their website

Stolen property
Every two minutes something is stolen in New Zealand and now there is a website that could help Kiwis get back what is theirs.
The website is designed to turn the table on burglars.
