  • Happy #WorldElephantDay! Elephants are intelligent creatures with incredible memories and complex social lives. Our Elephant Listening Project (ELP) collects and analyzes forest elephant sights and sounds in Central Africa to investigate the ways these animals communicate, socialize and cope with increasing threats. 🐘 ⠀

    Using thermal cameras and acoustic devices developed by our Bioacoustics Research Program (Cornell BRP), ELP provides key insights needed to conserve these animals in the wild.
