Viewers will be able to see Asian elephants Asha and Chandra whenever the two are in the community stall inside their new home.
â€œFrom now until the spring, the elephant cam will provide a glimpse into the everyday lives of Asha and Chandra,â€ said David Morris, director of video for OPUBCO Communications Group. â€œThanks to the support and generous access from the Oklahoma City Zoo, we have perched a camera above the community stall.â€
The camera is the centerpiece of the NewsOK Elephant Nation page, which documents the elephant breeding program at the Oklahoma City Zoo.
Asha and Chandra spent more than two years at the Tulsa Zoo, breeding with the bull elephant Sneezy. The sister elephants returned to Oklahoma City last month.
Asha is scheduled to give birth in May. Her calf will be the first elephant born at the Oklahoma City Zoo.
Chandra's pregnancy status is still unknown.
The elephant camera will allow members of the community to reconnect with Asha and Chandra, said Dwight Scott, executive director of the zoo.
â€œThere's been tremendous interest in the elephants being back in Oklahoma City,â€ Scott said.
