It’s the end of the dry season here at sanctuary, which means the sun is strong and everyone is a little parched. During this time of year, the elephants spend a lot of time napping during the day or taking advantage of the water sources around the habitat, while the humans wish for the seasonal showers to finally come. Simply said: we’re ready for an end to the dry season.
Luckily for us, we got a brief reprieve from the heat with a few days of humidity in the 30% range, rather than the 10% common right now. The sun has been really strong, but some cloud cover has passed overhead from time to time. The mornings and evenings have been slightly cooler than usual, so the elephants are feeling spunky. Our fastest girls – Guille and Maia – have been covering more ground during the day, as opposed to waiting for night time. The others are staying cool and patiently waiting, like the rest of us, for the cooling drops of rain that are (hopefully) soon to come.
P.S.: This week’s podcast episode premieres today and focuses on Rana’s time before sanctuary and what her early weeks at ESB were like. Listen directly from our website or using your favorite podcast app.
