Sandy Oduor, an elephant researcher at Mpala Research Centre in Laikipia, Kenya, is responsible for recording each individual elephant that passes through Mpala's property -- everything from the animal's approximate age to its GPS location to its reaction to humans. Sometimes risking life and limb to collect his data, Odour is committed to learning as much as he can about the elephants that pass through this land and those that call Mpala home.
