GPS exposes ivory smuggling route

US: An investigative journalist with National Geographic did just that. Bryan Christy got a taxidermist to design artificial, but extremely realistic-looking elephant tusks. He then had them embedded with custom-made GPS tracking chips. The journalist was able to track the tusks as they were moved through dangerous smuggling networks, from Congo to Sudan.
