Pygmy elephants tracked by GPS

GPS is helping the World Wildlife Fund shed light on the pygmy elephants in Malaysia. For the last six months, five pygmy elephants have been outfitted with a collar that can send GPS locations to the WWF daily. WWF will be following these elephants for several years by satellite to identify their home ranges and work with the Malaysian government to conserve the most critical areas. The public can track the movements of the elephants online through an interactive Web map at worldwildlife.org/borneomap.
