Published on Aug 3, 2012

8/1-2/2012 @ noon and 4:30pm @ the 2nd Pipeline watering station
Sissy and Winkie enjoy their pedicures and foot soaks along with treats. The "Pedicure Salons", refer to the elecam tower corrals.
The Sanctuary's Ele-cams are mounted on high camera towers throughout the habitats. These towers are surrounded by corrals which ensure the safety of Caregivers inside the corral while providing complete freedom for the elephants outside the corrals. This week's Elecam Encounter provides a unique overhead view of Caregivers working diligently as they provide foot care for our Girls through Protected Contact Training. From the safety of the corral, Caregivers utilize the newly installed Protected Contact Training wall. Corrals with training walls are being built around the towers throughout the habitats. With the addition of automatic watering stations, these areas provide excellent facilities which allow Caregivers to care for our Girls without limiting the Girl's access to freely move about their natural habitat. As seen in this video, Winkie willingly puts her foot in the tub for a good foot soak and even positions the tub so she can reach her treats. The "jumbo" treat of course is watermelon and Winkie is seen here enjoying every little bit of it. Foot care is a critical part of caring for elephants in order to avoid infections and bone disease which can ultimately endanger an elephant's life.
