New Elecam System Goes Live
2011-03-03

Elecams are here!

It's finally here! After much anticipation along the way, the new Elecam System is now live! A whole new system has been installed throughout the Sanctuary so you can now view live streaming video from each of the 3 habitats.

Total, there are 14 cameras mounted on 11 towers and three barns, and 1 camera per habitat is activated at any given time. Caregivers will keep an eye on the cameras and will add comments under the video as their time allows. On each habitat page, users may click on an elephant's image to read her bio and see pictures of her identifying traits.

This system allows supporters to view the elephants in a natural environment and also enables caregivers to locate and monitor them. As part of our distance learning program, we will also be able to host educational video conferences with students anywhere in the world.

We would like to thank a generous benefactor, the George Conner Trust, for gifting us the resources to build the necessary infrastructure to expand the Elecams. We're excited to offer you this one-of-a-kind experience to view the elephants in a way you may never have before.
