An elephant is currently being killed by poachers every 15 minutes, and humans, who love watching them so much, have declared war on their species. New tracking collars are being designed that use advanced AI techniques to keep track of and protect elephants like never before. The new ElephantEdge tracker is considered the most advanced of its kind, with eight years of battery life and hundreds of miles of range. This gives rangers a more accurate image and location to track than earlier systems that captured and reported on pictures of all wildlife, which ran down the trackers’ battery life.
