Science generates a wealth of data on wildlife for conservation purposes each day. What if we opened up some of that data to tell some of the amazing stories of the wild, and get more support for wildlife conservation? Our new project, Satellite Stories, is an experiment in opening up scientific data to create an engaging interactive product for broader audiences.

If you have been following us for a while, you know our big vision project is Safari Central, a location based game that brings real animals from the wild to your world. In the past two years, we’ve prototyped several versions of the game and raised funds through a kickstarter campaign to develop the tech further. So we are super excited to announce that we are now in the process of building the full fledged version of Safari Central, and we are kicking it off exclusively with Great Ape stars.
We’re proud to announce our founder & CEO Gautam Shah has been selected as a National Geographic Explorer!
At Internet of Elephants we are trying to create emotional connections between people and wildlife, and we think one of the keys to this could be through the use of data. Why data? To many people, data means cold facts and figures, complex algorithms and research that is not understandable to non-academics. But when IoE looks at data, we see the enthralling stories behind it. We've selected the data of an elephant, wildebeest and two lions to show the world how their stories can capture the imagination.
