The nonprofit Save the Elephants just released a new video which explains how they use +Google Earth to track elephant movements in Kenya and across Africa. This tracking system allows Save the Elephants to add to their understanding of elephant behavior and even to receive alerts when elephants might be in a situation that calls for rangers to respond. Watch the video to learn more!
