Pumpkin Season at The Sanctuary

In addition to the natural forage available in their Sanctuary habitats, the elephants' diets also include hay, produce, and nutritional supplements provided by Caregivers. Thanks to the donors who participate in our Feed for A Day and Adopt and Elephant programs,  Sanctuary staff are able to provide the elephants with a diverse range of dietary options, and each elephant has her own tastes. Pumpkins, however, seem to be a Sanctuary-wide favorite…and pumpkin season is upon us.

Over the past two weeks, pumpkins have been appearing out the habitat…some decorated, some filled with other nutritional supplements…to be discovered by the elephants.
