On July 24, 2017, Jack Ma adopted an African elephant named 'Hangzhou'. Now that a year has passed, scientists have been analyzing the data from Hangzhou's GPS collar to track its behavior.
Staff from Alibaba Cloud are currently in negotiations with their Kenyan partners to discuss more areas for cooperation. In addition to GPS collars and environmental monitoring equipment, Alibaba hopes to implement technical upgrades on patrol vehicles and use drones to help develop integrated air-ground monitoring solutions. If elephants run into danger from poachers or other threats, drones will be able to survey the area instantly without endangering the safety of park rangers.
