Meet Our Elephants!

Whether you adore Maia’s wacky ways and are keeping her close to your heart as she finds a new level of emotional strength, have a soft spot for Rana, her sweet vocalization and appreciation of everyday joys or would like to take Lady and her ailing body under your wing, or Mara because you are enamored with her sweet face and charmed by her innocence, or want to welcome our newest grandma Bambi to the herd, you can show them some extra love and support.
