auto parts and machinery which are both vital to the manufacturing sector of u.s. workers which trump has said he wants to support it's startling that on this day when the white house sent to the congress a plan to ratify the new nafta agreement now called the us mexico canada agreement which took years of negotiations to work out that it appears the white house also unilaterally on the single day may be tearing up that work with these threatened tariffs which ironically that trilateral agreement is working to curb so the real question is whether or not these tariffs truly will happen whether this is an empty threat or realistic it's the same question we asked ourselves a few months ago when trump had threatened to close the entire southern border in response to the migrant crisis he never did that rather he claimed without providing evidence that mexico had stepped up in its immigration enforcement
2:01 pm
against central americans and it is telling that in this renewed threat of tariffs on mexico there is nothing in the ultimatum that says to mexico what it needs to accomplish to avoid these tariffs so it opens the door again for the trump administration to claim a victory while in essence still avoiding the tariffs if it so chooses and in the process scoring political points with the base eric phones with his vice president of the council of the americas he says the trumpet ministration is wrong target mexico. it's only bad news for supply chains and for their culture and sector and for the business community generally which depends on certainty between the united states and mexico and indeed that's been one of the primary rationales for trying to replace nafta with the u.s. m.c.a. is to put in place for the long term a certain business environment if that can now be scrambled through unilateral tariffs that's going to cause

2:21 pm
a quick summary for you when we come back in about 28 minutes i'll see that. al-jazeera where every. and conflicts one of the silent and forgotten casualties is often the environment. from the chemical contamination of soils and the collapse of water and food
2:22 pm
supplies to the habitat damage caused by displacement. has devastating consequences. not seen any manmade infrastructure has but also natural ecosystems are destroyed and imo lives are lost as well as human. but even amidst the most vicious struggles through people fighting to protect the world we live in and recover what was lost. i'm tanya a sheet and bangladesh in the world's largest refugee camps where people are working to co-exist with the elephants for which this region is home and i'm happy to talk to lebanon on were group of scientists is rebuilding a seed bank that was displaced by the war in syria. in august 2017 a brutal campaign of ethnic cleansing began in myanmar. the military and buddhist
2:23 pm
radicals claimed the lives of more than $6000.00 in a single month. fearing death thousands more fled the country for the forests of bangladesh. the scale of the exodus was enormous. today they are still unable to return home. there are over 1200000 rohingya refugees living inside of the falling cap the bottom of. this is now the biggest settlements of refugees in the world. many of them don't have access to clean water sanitation or even electricity. but after they arrived the survivors faced a new threat wild elephants rampaging through county. i'm meeting on one about who witnessed an initial episode 1st hand it came from their week it. looked and came to
2:24 pm
a cost you know from the jungle over that way by directly after all that and started feeding her how twisted but it struck. this was no one on elephants truck repeatedly throughout the camp killing 13 people in the space of 5 months. can you tell me a little bit about what happened the 1st and last one of them other side of the just sort of the body which it would only hold on to hold on to the little one little bit of a little bit a little bit is out of the way you know what happened after that that i shut it out i will put it out and you annoy him a little worse in the morning a lot of you would only knew go down ahead of it i used to say to the world but i didn't have whole whole the mother that the doctor one of them mother said the whole as if it did i don't recall it it was i love you i got us all the 1. the question mark quite a cooling off budget loom is about a lot less than the full knowledge of the bill called out how to cool bullet holes
2:25 pm
all that i think you will hold over the years lloyd this is. the attack sparked an investigation into what was going on. recchi but i mean from the international union for conservation of nature believes the rapid expansion of the settlement had a profound impact on the natural environment this is the edge of the camp or cave right yeah this is where the forest began yes what's been going on was the cause behind all of these that you see on all camps they used to be forest there seems to be an elephant have habitat. the cap expanded at an astonishing rate over $1500.00 hectares of forests were cleared to accommodate the influx of hundreds of thousands of refugees. but nobody realised the devastating impact this would have the growing camps severed a vital lifeline for some of bangladesh's last remaining wild elephants blocking
2:26 pm
a herd of 40 from their only path to essential grazing brown. just over there is there is a space we call the elephant now the since the camp is completely blocking that coded door elephant cannot pass through this have it in such an office shelter in search of his food essential fizz migration path elephants was trying to come inside the camp elephant came so many times and 13 you know simple life force and lost. and elephant is not necessarily a violent mammal it's very intelligent understands it has uses emotions and is show us that it's loss is habitat is desperate to do this animal migration. it's in their d.n.a. elephant is a genetic memories and then know exactly where they have been growing where they have been roaming generation after generation they take the same part. the elephants of bangladesh are critically endangered there are just $268.00 left and
2:27 pm
they're increasingly under threat. $15000.00 hectares of land are already deforested in the country every year and this camp only adds to the problem. to help me understand what the elephants are up against i've hired a local guy. so the man in front of me. his name means golden boy and he's our tracker for the day i think we're going to have. it's not long before we find clues that we're on the right path. honda had. it out that is if they bought a good one going to space is that they just saw bungalow going to fit the color didn't it out without i would have basic i thought that i believe bunk living is that. we find evidence of hungry elephants everywhere we're just sick of our system it's just guys like the elephant whisperer. tells me that by the end of
2:28 pm
the summer much of the elephants food here will be gone. then they face a nightmare scenario attempt to migrate through the camp to me in march in search of fresh vegetation or risk running out of food. place is a place where they deny me guess if they. were following the actual footsteps of the elephants. elephants have walked along this path every season for thousands of years i'm feeling really excited i wonder for actually going to encounter some elephants were being told that just a few steps away that they're there then against the odds a moment i can't believe. a majestic standing proud on the horizon. it's just quite scary i've never seen an elephant like my own my 1st time.
2:29 pm
it looks so peaceful in its natural habitat it's just really crazy to think that before the caps were put in place that the sis what it was a large for with animals roaming about and now there's a human made crisis at play with sprawling refugee camps and it's just a very sad situation. but a select band of refugees is working to solve the problem with the support of the international union for conservation of nature there formed a group dedicated to safety shepherding the elephants from the camp. they call themselves the tusk force. central to their strategy our $94.00 watchtowers which they built around the camp perimeter. they are manned by a team of over 500 brave refugees ready to intervene and protect both the people
2:30 pm
and. i'm heading up for a bird's eye view. of what. ok so what's going on there simulating what actually happens when an elephant comes and you see the yellow shirts yeah so they have the best possible x'mas so they are using the bible so they know. how to respond and they want to form a human shield and slowly moves towards alison so that the elephant understands this danger i have. down on the ground it's clear how committed the tusk orse are. happening conditional training go to the right. i stand. by the hockey i see me not that i think of that so i thought it was. quite loud and scary i think that would certainly show an elephant off. since the
2:31 pm
times 1st started there has been no loss of life here despite 45 incursions by elephants it's an effective temporary solution until a longer term plan is made for managing the animals migration. the tusk force has motivated the community with over 500 people signing up to join and has supporters throughout the camp. what are you doing over here what is this. i think all these different patterns and colors seems like it's a lot of work to do why go through all this trouble to do it. by that had to be. on one where only one with a machine a 3rd of. my body just learning how to.
2:32 pm
do you feel that there's more danger living on the edge of the forest versus people who live in the interior of the camp. that have. a sort of the look is not on the beautiful. and. not only do people feel more secure they are also more sensitive to the elephant situation saving the animals is now even part of the school's curriculum. you know what you're. doing. the objective is not to build on this momentum. recchi was already taking steps to find a permanent solution to the problem beginning with an in-depth scientific study of the elephants migratory happening. we are planning to put radio collars on that
2:33 pm
listen this will give us a valuable data valuable science to have a better management of the situation once the exact migration route is no the goal is to clear a path for the elephants so that they can migrate unhindered once again of course we want to open the cordoned off from last possible that are so few issues that we need to consider before doing that it will take about 100000 people. people to move somewhere else that would be an m. ments logistical challenge but as human refugees continue to resettle around the world bold moves are needed to reduce the impact on local animal populations what i've seen here gives me hope that animals do not always need to be victims of conflict and that a peaceful coexistence is possible. there over food to armed conflict.
