If you want fascinating facts, awesome animals,

:00:00.:00:07.

and of course, the day's top news stories, keep watching.

:00:08.:00:09.

Find out why these bears are taking over a village in Romania.

:00:10.:00:15.

First up, we're weeks away from the start

:00:16.:00:30.

of Strictly Come Dancing 2017, and the first of 15 celebrities

:00:31.:00:33.

battling it out for the glitter ball trophy has been announced.

:00:34.:00:37.

It's Mollie King, from pop group, The Saturdays!

:00:38.:00:41.

The singer said she's "so excited" to take part,

:00:42.:00:43.

and that she's going to give it "her all".

:00:44.:00:47.

We asked last year's winner, Ore Oduba, what his advice

:00:48.:00:49.

for all of the Strictly contestants would be.

:00:50.:00:52.

Head online to see what he has to say.

:00:53.:00:54.

Moving on, do you think men should always put out the bins,

:00:55.:00:57.

while women should always do the dishes?

:00:58.:00:59.

Well, the people who make adverts have been told to be more careful

:01:00.:01:02.

about how they show the roles of boys and girls.

:01:03.:01:05.

VOICEOVER: Grown-up like Mummy and strong like Daddy.

:01:06.:01:14.

That's nothing compared to Captain Awesome today.

:01:15.:01:19.

Well, if you watch closely, there's an issue that some people

:01:20.:01:30.

That's with the way they seem to show how girls should be

:01:31.:01:36.

This is known as gender stereotyping.

:01:37.:01:40.

Ads that paint a picture that, for example, it's the woman's role

:01:41.:01:44.

to tidy up after her family who've trashed the house,

:01:45.:01:47.

Similarly, ads that mock men for being hopeless at performing

:01:48.:01:53.

straightforward parental or household tasks

:01:54.:01:56.

Now that the kids know what to look for,

:01:57.:02:01.

has it changed what they think of the ads?

:02:02.:02:03.

The way they're putting it, it's just like girls

:02:04.:02:06.

are weak and pretty, but boys are strong.

:02:07.:02:08.

And that's not always the way it works.

:02:09.:02:13.

I actually know quite a few boys who quite like dolls.

:02:14.:02:16.

But I know about ten girls who hate dolls.

:02:17.:02:22.

I hate dolls. I've never, ever played with dolls.

:02:23.:02:24.

Exactly, so I think we should get a boy and...a few

:02:25.:02:28.

girls and about two boys on it as well.

:02:29.:02:32.

The Munch Bunch is all right, because it has boys in and girls in.

:02:33.:02:37.

If I was in charge of the adverts, I would try to make it more modern

:02:38.:02:41.

Just try and close the sexist gap and try and get an equal number

:02:42.:02:50.

Moving on to animal news now, and the fight against illegal

:02:51.:02:57.

The British Army are helping park rangers in Gabon, in Africa,

:02:58.:03:01.

to protect elephants there from poachers,

:03:02.:03:03.

who are hunting them for their ivory tusks.

:03:04.:03:05.

These forest elephants are under threat, all because of their tusks.

:03:06.:03:12.

They live in Gabon, a country on the coast of Africa.

:03:13.:03:15.

Most of Gabon is covered in rainforest, stretching

:03:16.:03:18.

for thousands of miles, and most of Africa's forest

:03:19.:03:20.

But poachers want their tusks, which are made of ivory,

:03:21.:03:27.

so that they can sell them for lots of money.

:03:28.:03:30.

It's thought 30,000 elephants have been poached in the last ten

:03:31.:03:33.

years, more than half of the elephants in Gabon.

:03:34.:03:36.

Even though there's a worldwide ban on the sale of ivory,

:03:37.:03:39.

there's still an illegal trade and poachers can make a lot

:03:40.:03:41.

But the British Army hopes it can help to tackle the problem.

:03:42.:03:50.

Gabon has got a really high density of forest elephants.

:03:51.:03:53.

That's why it has a poaching problem.

:03:54.:03:59.

Out here, training the Gabonese National Parks Agency to combat that

:04:00.:04:02.

means that the British Army can make a difference in that fight

:04:03.:04:04.

They're training park rangers in how to find poachers hiding

:04:05.:04:10.

in the forest and help get the evidence they need to get

:04:11.:04:13.

Poaching is a huge problem here, but it's hoped that the training

:04:14.:04:17.

the British Army are giving can make a big difference.

:04:18.:04:25.

Now to the bears causing a bit of a shock to people

:04:26.:04:29.

The animals, who usually stay higher up in the mountains,

:04:30.:04:33.

One brown bear entered someone's home, and even ate

:04:34.:04:36.

The bears are looking for something to eat

:04:37.:04:40.

because of a shortage of grub in their natural habitat.

:04:41.:04:44.
