A New Favorite Hangout Spot for Maia and Rana

Maia and Rana

Rana on the left and Maia on the right, at the mud wallow just east of the pond. Laughingly, this is one of the most challenging photos to get, although they are there together almost every day.

If you go out there while they are together, one of them will inevitably walk over to the fence to see what you have. We’ve tried to capture them using the drone, but by the time we get to Wall-E and get him flying, someone has usually walked away to the trough. But we love that this is a new favorite spot for them to hang out and that they are more than happy to do it together.

For our Ramba fundraiser update: we are halfway through our second 10K match! Once that match is met, we will be about 2/3 of the way to the goal.  Thank you to everyone who has donated, , commented and shared. It is working because we have seen some new names in the past few days.  Keep up the excellent work!!

    Your sanctuary is wonderful for elephants, but very expensive to get them there! This must be anguish for you all. Just keep
    praying! God answers all prayers.
