Kenya elephant collaring

A local Maasai tribesman stands by the tusk of a tranquilized wild elephant during an elephant-collaring operation near Kajiado, in southern Kenya Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2013. Teams from the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) and the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) took part in the operation to tranquilize wild elephants from a helicopter, so they could then be fitted with a GPS-tracking collar enabling the teams to monitor their migration routes and to help prevent poaching.
