Happy Re-Birthday, Lady! ❤️

Lady

One year ago today, Lady joined our herd and became the fourth rescue elephant to call Elephant Sanctuary Brazil home. When she walked out of the transport crate a year ago, she had no idea what to expect. It’s safe to say that she wasn’t expecting to be able to call acres of pastures, trees, ponds, mud wallows, and creeks home.

She has settled in and seems to realize this is her forever home. While she continues to keep some distance from the other elephants, she loves her parties of one in the ponds, in “her” bushes, and anywhere else the mood strikes her. She loves watermelon, cranberries, cabbage, and pumpkin.

She regularly seems to push her boundaries and comfort zones, which has helped her grow incredibly in the past year. She has stolen our hearts with her hairline, independence, love of wandering, and incredible bravery. We can’t wait to see how she continues to grow and evolve in the years to come.

Happy Re-Birthday, Lady! ❤️

    Gorgeous elephant. Well done GSE on this beauty’s
    rescue. Humans could learn a lot from these extremely intelligent, emotionally complex, gentle giants. The saddest thing I read here was, ‘a party of one.’ Elephants are social animals, and their entire lives revolve around family and social interaction, (even more so than humans), led by the wise matriarchs. Sad to see humans continuing to abuse these gentle giants in Asia & Africa.

    But it’s great to see she’s enjoying life here at GSE and receiving all the help she requires, (especially her physical/emotional needs). Well done GSE. The more elephants we can rescue and give a home too the better the world will be. It only takes one person to change an animals world and its life for the better.
