As part of our shifting herd dynamics, Mara, Rana, and Maia have been seen together multiple times the past few days. There have been a few cute moments between the three girls, and it’s encouraging to see the three spending time together relaxed and clearly enjoying each other’s company.
In non-elephant related news, we have had roofers here the past few weeks replacing the office roof. We have to admit that replacing a roof during the rainy season is a bit of a battle, but it is happening, albeit slowly. As a bonus, the humans are becoming adept at dodging buckets that are catching drips and puddles in the house. ?
We also wanted to share that a large branch fell off the Itchy-Scratchy tree. We aren’t sure what caused it to fall off, and believe the tree is still healthy overall. The “famous” tree just looks different now. The elephants don’t seem to mind, as they are still scratching on it every time they stop by Yard 1, and that is what matters.
