Migrating wildebeests, raging hippos, and robotic boats on Kenya's Mara River

In these videos, Amanda Subalusky and Chris Dutton of the Yale Mara Project describe their research on the impact of wildebeests and hippos on rivers within Kenya's Maasai Mara National Reserve. The scientists also describe their use of small robotic boats to collect environmental data from Mara River locations full of Nile crocodiles and hippos, areas that would be too dangerous to sample otherwise.
