Elephant Sanctuary Brazil Class of 2021: Mara

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.



Mara is a popular elephant by nature, and has the ability to draw others to her side. She loves a good conversation, and will talk to just about anyone – her friends, her caregivers, and maybe even herself! And if her humans don’t respond, she just gets louder and louder until she receives the acknowledgement she is looking for. That’s why Elephant Sanctuary Brazil is naming Mara this year’s “Biggest Chatterbox.”
