Dr. Iain Douglas-Hamilton is a renowned zoologist known for his conservation efforts in Africa, and is the founder of “Save The Elephants“!
In this video, Iain explains how Google Earth is used as a tool to help the elephants. As he puts it, the elephants are going through tough times at the moment:
- There’s a terrible drought going on in Kenya.
- The price of ivory has gone up.
- Poaching is increasing.
The organization Save The Elephants primarily looks at Elephant decision-making through studying their movements. The aim is to understand their needs, because if we can…only then can we secure their future!
Google Earth provides a very easy way to find out what the elephants are up to and where they’re going!
