Summary:

The animation tracks six elephants across the Kavango-Zambezi region. It is based on 18 months of daily GPS locations (November 2006 - July 2008). Yellow, red and pink symbols denote cows, whilst those for bulls are shown in white, light blue and dark blue. Blank and star symbols distinguish dry and wet season locations. [source page]
