Meet the Elephants
Let me introduce you to Pilipili. Pilipili is a member of the Spice family of elephants in Samburu National Reserve in Kenya. Elephant families in the park are given thematic family names and then each member of the family is given a first name on that theme.
Google's latest Street View Trek is a wonderful tour around Samburu National Reserve, Kenya, in which we get to meet the park's elephant families. The tour also explains the work of Save the Elephants, who are working hard to protect and save Africa's elephants.
The tour explains how Save the Elephants monitors elephants on the ground, from the air and via GPS tracking. The organisation also patrols the park, protecting the elephants from poachers and works to rehabilitate injured and orphaned elephants.
