非洲納米比亞地區的雨季只有數週,其餘時間很少下雨。幸好大象能預測到150英里外的雨,並會遷徙到降雨地區,才能在這種乾旱的環境下生存。得知大象的這種能力後,保育團體希望能藉此預測大象的去向,更有效地阻止非法捕獵。

the rainy season in africa’s namibia region last only a few weeks, and the rest of the time it rarely rain. luckily, elephants are able to sense rainstorms from 150 miles away, and would head to that region for water in order to survive in this arid environment. with this new discovery, conservationists are hoping to predict where the elephant would go by using weather data, and get a better chance of protecting them from illegal hunting.
