Google, for the first time, has released Street View imagery of Kenya of Samburu National Reserve, Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in partnership with Save the Elephants.
For the last 15 years, Save the Elephants have been working alongside Samburu people to study and protect elephants. According to Save the Elephants’ David Dabellen, research shows that 100,000 elephants across Africa were killed for their ivory between 2010-2012, but thanks to their work in the Samburu National Reserve their numbers are now slowly increasing.
Not everyone has the opportunity to visit Samburu National Reserve to see these magnificent elephants in their natural habitat. Through Google’s Street View, now it is possible to discover the captivating landscape of the region and its wildlife.
