Hill Country Elephant Preserve- Specialized Care
At Hill Country Elephant Preserve, our elephants receive care that is personalized to their specific needs. Elephant needs change over time, just as ours do.
We are constantly working to adjust their diet, exercise and care routine to fit with what will keep them healthiest.
As one example of our specialized care, Tai currently wears an orthotic. This orthotic fits the bottom of Tai's foot to help adjust her gait. In order to keep Tai walking smoothly and comfortably, she receives a new orthotic every month!
Dixie also has her own extra-special care routine. At 57 years old, Dixie is the oldest member of the herd. To help keep Dixie feeling young and spry, she participates in daily physical therapy, along with getting a few extra supplements.
Donating to our Specialized Care fund will help us provide the personalized care that all of our elephants need.
