Video Title:
FIELD IN FOCUS | Elephants in Myanmar: Elephant Poaching
Description:
Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute scientists are tracking Asian elephants in Myanmar’s Ayeyarwady region using GPS collars. Though they set out to understand how elephants use the land, their research has also revealed a troubling rise in poaching. Unlike African elephants, Asian elephants are poached for their skin and eat — making males, females and calves equal targets. Conservation efforts in Myanmar are shifting to stop this urgent threat.
