Elephant Sanctuary Brazil Class of 2021: Bambi

As the year winds to a close, we see how the elephants at sanctuary have changed, grown, settled into who they are, and continue to challenge themselves to find the most in life. So, in the grand tradition of the high school yearbook, we’ve christened each elephant with her own “class honor,” for 2021.


This year, Bambi’s inner strength has grown and she has learned more about what it means to be an elephant and how to be a better friend. That’s why she is Elephant Sanctuary Brazil’s “Most Changed Since ‘Freshman Year’.” With her go-getter attitude, who knows how far she’ll grow!

    I hope Bambi doesn’t look back on her yearbook picture and think to herself “What was I thinking when I did my hair like that!!” I can certainly relate!@
