Jake Wall, a PhD student at UBC
in Vancouver, Canada, has invented
a device to help save elephants.
Wall tracks elephants by using
smartphones and Google Earth.
For 10 years, Wall has worked with
Save the Elephants in Kenya, East Africa.
He hopes his new invention
will help stop poaching.
The US believes that it is important to destroy ivory seized as a result of Law Enforcement investigations and at international ports of entry because elephant poaching in Africa is at its worst in decades. They are committed to protecting elephants from extinction. (Photo: Gavin Shire / USFWS Mountain-Prairie / CC, Flickr)
