Approximately 2,500 Grevy’s zebra are left in the wild today compared to 15,000 in the 1970s. Due to the vast area they range over, they are difficult to count. Marwell uses questionnaire surveys, aerial surveys, camera traps and radio collars to monitor the endangered animal.
Conservation charity, Marwell Wildlife, is using IBM’s analytics software to identify patterns and analyse data about the Grevy’s Zebra in the far north of Kenya. Jenny Williams finds out how predictive analytics is helping the conservation effort.
