Elephant Researchers Build Solar-Powered Research Camp (video) Stanford University Share Print E-Mail Loading video... Caption A team of elephant researchers from Stanford University has transformed a remote corner of southern Africa into a high-tech field camp run entirely on sunlight. The solar-powered research camp, which operated from June through August, gave scientists a rare opportunity to quietly observe, videotape and photograph wild elephants at Mushara waterhole, an isolated oasis in Etosha National Park in Namibia.
