Projects

Some of the projects who have recently used our GPS tracking equipment for their projects:

Save the elephants

Save the Elephants, a Kenyan based NGO working on elephant conservation issues throughout the African continent. STE is using Savannah Tracking GPS-GSM collars for some of their tracking projects in Kenya in and around Samburu National Reserve as well as on Mt Kenya. Save the Elephants work towards securing a future for elephants and sustain the beauty and ecological integrity of the places they live. Visit the Project

 

Amboseli Elephant Research Project

The Amboseli Elephant Research Project (AERP) is the longest study of wild elephants in the world. In 2007 Amboseli Elephant Research Project collared their first elephant with a Savannah Tracking GPS Satellite collar. In August 2011 five of the core adult females from five of the elephant families were collared with Savannah Tracking GPS-GSM collars. This GPS collaring was undertaken in order to understand the distributions and ranging patterns of families with regard to ecological conditions and social status. Although the Amboseli elephant research is normally totally non-invasive, the decision to collar the five females was taken in order to gain more detailed information on the migration routes elephants use within the greater Amboseli ecosystem.

The GPS collars are especially useful for obtaining information from areas outside the Amboseli National Park that are difficult for researchers to access. The collars provide a constant stream of background data on how elephants are using the 8,000 square kilometres that make up the Amboseli ecosystem. This is critical to facilitate land use planning in relation to areas that elephants need for their survival and future security.

You can follow some of these elephants via the MiSavannah tracking APP for iPhones and Androids and read more about their project on the app. For additional information on the project please visit the project.  

Marwell Wildlife

Seven organization, all committed to conserving the Grevy’s zebra, are now working together in Kenya. This collaboration, The Grevy’s Zebra Technical Committee (GZTC) is both collaborative and democratic in nature, and brings together organisations and individuals with complementary expertise in policy, awareness, communities, research, monitoring and management. The GZTC was established in 2007 and has been responsible for generating the first National species conservation strategy in Kenya, its implementation and management and ongoing review and maintenance.

GZTC Savannah Tracking GPS-GSM collars as their latest generation of collars. You can follow some of these zebras via the MiSavannah tracking APP for iPhones and Androids and read more about their project for conserving this extremely endangered species of zebra.
