Today marks the 5th anniversary of Maia and Guida’s arrival at Elephant Sanctuary Brazil. The two taught each other important lessons on how to build relationships with other elephants and Maia learned the necessity of showing vulnerability in order to have lasting friendships.
While Guida has now passed, we don’t want this day to be one of mourning. Instead, let’s celebrate the ways that Guida changed us all and the time she spent here, experiencing autonomy and deep love.
Maia will always hold Guida in her heart, but now we see Maia growing and beginning to open up in ways that Guida helped her to do. Here’s to friendship, healing, and freedom of choice – for the elephants and each of you who connect with their journeys.
We hope you enjoy this video and that you will tag a dear friend or post a photo of you together in the comments section on today’s Facebook post. (https://www.facebook.com/globalsanctuaryforelephants)
