Maia Goes On a Walk

Maia is known for enjoying time to herself on occasion, though she has become more social with the other elephants over the last several months. In this video, Maia has an entire section of Yard 4 all to herself and seems to be relishing a few moments of the peace that sanctuary offers. Soon afterward, she joined Bambi, Mara, Rana, and Guillermina for some morning grazing and socializing. But, for some, there can be no substitute for a little peace and quiet every once in a while.

    It’s amazing how much restorative peace can be conveyed in a short one-minute video, just through watching a contented elephant enjoy herself and her surroundings. Thank you for this sharing.

    It is a pure delight to hear you tell of the stories behind the videos. You do have a way with words that bring meaning to them. I often am struck by wondering what these beautiful souls are thinking about their rescue into this paradise on earth and the love extended to them. Thank you for sharing.
