Once the government decommissioned a miles-long fence separating two vital ecosystems in Botswana, resident wildlife quickly seized the opportunity to trek from a Garden of Eden-type place to one of the largest salt flats on the planet. A radio collared elephant named Naledi revealed the “new” pachyderm path to the aerial research team with Elephants Without Borders (EWB), a partner with San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research. For 11 years, EWB has been monitoring and tracking elephants to learn their ancient secrets. Their work has helped government agencies craft conservation protocols across the country.
