Im Kampf gegen die Elfenbeinwilderei lancieren die kenianische Regierung und der IFAW (Internationaler Tierschutz-Fonds) das gemeinsame Projekt „tenBoma“. Mittels einer neuartigen Daten-Plattform und dem Einsatz moderner Technologie wie Drohnen und Satellitenbildern werden Wilderei bezogene Informationen gesammelt und analysiert. Die so gewonnenen Informationen, sowie gezielte Hinweise von Informanten aus den betroffenen Gemeinden, sollen helfen, wirksamer gegen Wilderer vorzugehen, bevor sie zuschlagen können.
