How Can We Measure Elephant Populations?

Screenshot of the Elephant Census interactive showing the Count Elephants tool tab.

In this interactive, students use tools to simulate how scientists collected and used sample data to estimate elephant population sizes.

Elephant Census

A3MG developed this interactive working with content producers and designers at HHMI BioInteractive. A3MG designed the UI/UX, programmed the “Measure Area” and “Count Elephants” tools, and accessibility elements. The data students collect with the tools is compiled into the printable “Data Tables” tab where students can analyze further.

This project has been designed to comply with the WCAG 2.1 AA accessibility guidelines.
