Local researchers, including Modeste Doukaga, above, have spent nearly three years documenting the wildlife that visits Langoué Bai, enduring biting flies, foot worms, and charging elephants. The payoff: $500 a month—and a window on a world few humans have ever seen. So far they've identified 800 different elephants that use the clearing.
