Clooney Project Fights Elephant Killing by Christian Militia

Updated on

A project co-founded by actor George Clooney is providing data to Congolese rangers who are fighting the Lord’s Resistance Army and other poachers who are shooting elephants from helicopters and cutting off their tusks with chainsaws.

Clooney’s Satellite Sentinel Project, the Enough Project and DigitalGlobe are providing satellite data and field research to help rangers in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s Garamba National Park identify and patrol areas where poachers are operating, the groups said in a report released on Wednesday.
