Construction and expansion of Elephant Sanctuary Brazil is a constant. We have water troughs in several places throughout the female Asian habitat, but yesterday Scott and Panto were finishing a new one at the furthest point of the habitat. It’s by the pond, and a favorite spot for all of the girls. The stream isn’t far, but towards the end of the rainy season it will dry up, and it’s nice for the girls to have the extra water source.
Maia and Guida had watched the process closely, but very quietly. Which isn’t the ‘norm’ for Maia. When everything was done, and the trough was filling, the girls came over to inspect. Maia’s big trumpet was the first noise she had made the entire time. It seems she approves.
