Wildlife of Cameroon: Collared Elephants
Since 1998, Dr Mike Loomis and his colleagues have placed satellite tracking collars on nearly 40 elephants in Cameroon and Nigeria. Those collars have generated a tremendous amount of data that, in turn, have been used to better understand, and better conserve, elephants in those countries. The gallery below features 35 of those elephants.
