Scientists today fitted satellite tracking collars on two male elephants in the Amboseli ecosystem, Kenya.

Information transmitted from the collars will make it possible to map out their wanderings in search of food and water, assisting wildlife managers in developing strategies to prevent elephants from coming into conflict with local communities as well as monitoring their safety.

An exercise to fit tracking collars on four elephants within the Amboseli eco system was completed in Kenya today. The GPS collars, which transmit a satellite and radio signal, map out the elephants’ migratory routes and identify how expansively the elephants travel in search of water and vegetation.
