It’s official. As of today, Lady has officially been at her home at Elephant Sanctuary Brazil for two years. This elephant, who faces incredible challenges, has shown such strength and gratitude for her life here. Though she may require more physical and emotional space to heal than others, she displays a willingness to embrace the world on her own terms. Lady’s relationships continue to evolve and she shows more playfulness and curiosity every day.
Lady Bug, Miss Lady, or sometimes Bugalicious, is a born explorer. She is a spunky girl with a smile that melts your heart. She requires respect from everyone around her, but gaining her trust feels like an honor.
This video is a perfect reflection of Lady and of her life at sanctuary. She’s relaxed with the sun setting behind her, grazing in fresh grass, making happy ear flaps, and wearing her trademark “hay hat.” Her face is lovely and there is no hurry to be anywhere else. This is her life and she is making choices that bring her joy.
Happy Re-Birthday to Lady. Here’s to many more.
Don’t forget, tomorrow is #GivingTuesday. Get ready to pick your teams and give the female African elephants Room to Roam.
