Hi, I am working on a study to track wild elephant movement within an overlayed matrix of crop fields. We seek to understand how various landscape variables impact crop-raiding behavior and activity.
However, figuring out how to track the elephants is proving difficult.
- We cannot collar
- We cannot fly drones
- For ethical reasons, we cannot monitor in real-time without alerting farmers or rangers
We have camera traps, but the area is large, and we want to recreate the elephant's path through crops as close as possible. Are there any sensors or devices I may be overlooking or unaware of? Thanks!
