Tools used for measuring earthquakes could tell us when elephants are in danger.

Of course, elephants don’t run only from poachers. Lions and bees also send the herbivores packing. So the scientists would have to be able to decipher differences between natural elephant behaviors and those associated with human threats. But Mortimer, who previously studied how spiders obtain information from the vibrations of their webs, sees a lot of potential here. Seismic sensors have already proved themselves capable of working rapidly, reliably, and in remote locations, and Mortimer says they could be a much more affordable way to noninvasively gather data in the wild than methods requiring lots of rangers or even drones to monitor threatened populations.
