With temperatures dropping and Tarra and Bo using the barn for a few hours at night, this is essential.
The conveyor will carry urine-soaked sand from inside the stalls into a dump wagon.
Currently, our staff and volunteers are shoveling the urine-soaked sand by hand, lifting each heavy load up and over the sides of a dump wagon.
With this conveyor, the sand will be loaded at floor level where the conveyor will carry it up and over the side of the dump wagon. This will prevent injury to our dedicated staff and volunteers, save hours of labor, and ensure a spotlessly clean barn. The sand is recycled and used as fill for non-elephant areas of the property.
Every donation is greatly appreciated and helps us take care of the magnificent elephant residents under our care.
