SEVP visual and tactile signals database launched

We are frequently improving and expanding the website, following the planned scope of work and progress in the Savanna Elephant Vocalization Project/ElephantVoices. A major expansion of the website was todays launch of a database driven collection of elephant visual and tactile signals, the most comprehensive overview of elephant body language so far available.

Through a common terminology and understanding of these signals we can collectively better understand and anticipate elephant behavior and gain a window into their state of mind - and, thus, find better ways to manage and protect them. The collection of 171 signals of African savanna elephants (most with still photos, some with several) can be found here.

The collection should be helpful to anyone whose work depends on understanding the behavior of elephants.

Cheers, Petter/SEVP
