Mara Joins Guille, Maia, and Bambi

Gradually, we are seeing more occurrences of all the elephants spending time together in the same area. In this video, even though Rana isn’t there, Mara approaches Guillermina, Maia, and Bambi and she is being vocal with her herd mates. Bambi starts to walk away but then stops and starts to vocalize as well. 

Mara kept walking toward the three of them and Bambi didn’t go that far away. Throughout, Maia stays by Bambi’s side, coming when Bambi calls, to make sure she is there to reassure her. The fact that Bambi remained close by was a new development, since she tries to keep some distance between herself and Mara these days. This small change is a representation of the continuing evolution of sanctuary elephant dynamics.

    Wouldn’t it be great if we could get Mara and Bambi together for an interview and work this out between them.
