We are very excited to announce that the City of Buenos Aires has signed an official decree declaring that Kuky and Pupy will be future residents of Elephant Sanctuary Brazil!!!
Once we complete the first phase of development of the African Elephant Habitat, Kuky and Pupy will join Kenya in their forever home.
Kuky and Pupy, both female African elephants, arrived at the park together in 1993, and now they will be moving to sanctuary together. We are thrilled to be working with the Buenos Aires team once again and look forward to moving forward with bringing these two lovely ladies home.
This move will not be happening immediately. We still need to complete the initial fencing for the female African habitat. Additionally, we plan to transport Kenya from the Mendoza Ecoparque first. And by now, most of you know the drill…permits have to be applied for and issued by various authorities, quarantine needs to happen, etc. Kuky’s and Pupy’s arrival is at least six months away.
We are overjoyed about what this decision will mean for Kuky and Pupy. It is also exciting news for Kenya, who will now have two other elephants joining her once she is settled in.
Thank you again to everyone who donated to our #Fences4Kenya campaign, as, without your support, Kuky and Pupy would not have a habitat to be coming home to. ❤️
