The project in Tsavo is only the first step in exploring the partnership between Alibaba and the Kenyan Government and will see the parties explore using a wide range of features connected to Alibaba Cloud’s IoT platform.

Animal tracking sensors, infra-red trap cameras, smart weather stations, ranger devices and wide-area drones are among the technologies that will be considered to be installed to collect real-time data of the movements and general health of the animals.
