Large Elephant Monitoring Project, Kenya

Tsavo’s last surviving “hundred pounder” tuskers (elephant bulls bearing ivory weighing over 100 lbs. per side) are in peril as they are especially attractive to poachers.This project individually identifies and monitors the known large bull and cow elephants of Tsavo via light aircraft. Data collected during reconnaissance flights is then shared with Kenya Wildlife Services and Save The Elephants for research and elephant management and protection.
