I came across an excellent post at OgleEarth. It talks about the National Geographic article which highlights illegal poaching of Chad’s Elephants and also tracks Annie the elephant who carried a GPS collar. (Check out Annie’s Journey and its sad ending on Google Maps)
Quoting from OgleEarth
The KMZ file contains a wealth of geospatial information about and around Chad’s Zakouma National park — paths, roads, cultivated fields, animal sightings, photos, poacher camps… but the most poignant part is the time-stamped location readings of Annie the elephant, who carried a GPS collar for three months in 2006. We get to follow her and her herd around, but then on August 15 her path ends, as she’s been killed by poachers.
