In the elephant world, you often hear mentions of foot care and foot health. You might have heard stats like “Foot disease is the leading killer of elephants in captivity” or “50% of elephant mortality in captivity is due to foot disease.” While this fact is important, the why of the issue is generally not explained so we decided to go that extra step.
Our crowdfunding campaign closed on January 1st and the incredible generosity of the elephant community never ceases to amaze us. Over the last two months, thanks to the support of everyone who donated through our Indiegogo campaign, we raised over $11,000 in support of Elephant Sanctuary Brazil!
Thank you all once again for your support, donations and for helping to spread the word. We have only been here in Brazil for 6 days so far, and thanks to our tremendous partners, who work about as fast as they talk, our project is reaching new heights everyday.
