AMAZING NEWS! We received notification that the final CITES transport permits for Pocha and Guillermina have been signed. We’ve said before that it takes a village to move an elephant but, in this case, it took your voices from around the world. Thank you for your support, signing and sharing petitions, and bringing much attention to the plight of Pocha and Guillermina. Without you, this could not have happened.
There is no finalized date for their transport as of today but, rest assured, it will happen soon – once the stars align. We don’t want to wait a moment longer than necessary. Our team is currently working to put together a crew of caregivers for the move, as well as scheduling trucks, drivers, cranes, and the many other tiny things that need to come together quickly to get Pocha and Guillermina on the road and home to Elephant Sanctuary Brazil.
