In this episode, I sit down with one of the world's most famous elephant researchers, Dr. Cynthia Moss. Dr. Moss has been studying wild elephants in Africa for over 40 years. In 1972, Dr. Moss started the Amboseli Elephant Research Project, the longest running study of elephants to date. In this interview, we discuss elephant behavior, intelligence, social structure, empathy, and current threats they face in the wild. Other topics include the famous elephant "Echo", Dr. Moss's favorite elephant encounter, and advice for young researchers wanting to pursue a similar career path.
