WATCH LADY’S FIRST STEPS INTO THE HABITAT! (Saturday, November 30, 2019)
PART 2 ABOVE: Good morning! Lady (& humans) are feeling much more rested today. While we did not see her lying down, there are signs in the barn that she laid down last night when she was alone at the barn. She ate and drank well this morning. She is currently out in the yard closest to the barn, exploring. There continue to be some slight technical issues with our phone due to the Brazilian heat. Unrelated to the heat, the video goes out briefly in the middle, but resumes shortly after. Ramba, Rana, and Maia are out in the habitat this morning, so she has not seen other elephants yet, but she more than likely will at some point today. For now, she seems relaxed and calm – and already looks at home.
PART 1 BELOW: Watch Lady’s first steps in the habitat this morning. She is well rested and ate well this morning. This is a very brief video, as Scott is some having camera/phone issues.

Thank you, it is wonderful to see her there, she looks kinda overwhelmed…not badly… just taking in the gorgeous surroundings the likes of which she never will have seen before, one step at a time…

Hi guys, what causes an abscess on their faces? It seems to have been an issue with other elephants as well. Hoping we get to see lady with her sisters real soon here, thanks everyone!

It was from a pressure sore from lying down on hard surfaces at the zoo.

I was so happy to see Lady taking advantage of the yard I cried. They seem to adjust to their new home. I would love to know what Lady is thinking. I hope she has a long time at the sanctuary to make up for all the hard times she has had in her life.

I’m watching this for the first time, almost a year and a half afterwards. This is wonderful to see, and I try to imagine what is going through her head at the moment of first exploration. Wow!
