Frieda on the Move

Frieda on the move

Last week, Caregivers found Frieda sitting atop a hill near the northern edge of the Q habitat. We think this is the first time Frieda has ever visited this particular area! Frieda was also the first to check out the Q habitat extension; she seems to have established herself as a little bit of a trailblazer!

Winkie’s Anniversary

Winkie arrived at The Elephant Sanctuary on September 12, 2000, and quickly bonded with another arrival around that time, Sissy. After being captured from the wild in Burma as a calf, Winkie spent more than 30 years as an attraction at a Wisconsin zoo. See what Winkie (and Sissy) have been up to in the days leading up to her anniversary.

Winkie and Sissy’s life in Sanctuary will be the subject of a program at our Welcome Center in downtown Hohenwald, Tenn. on Saturday, Sept 20th. The Welcome Center will be open from 11:00 AM – 4:30 PM, with the program starting at 3:30 PM.
