Global Rumblings Podcast

Global Rumblings is a biweekly podcast dedicated to all things elephant. Featuring Global Sanctuary for Elephants co-founders Scott and Kat Blais, we’ll have in-depth discussions on topics ranging from sanctuary life, the ethics of captivity, physiology, and human and animal behavior. Hosted by Nadia Mari of Elephants in Japan and produced by a team of dedicated GSE volunteers, the wide-ranging, intimate conversations are sometimes fun, often frank, and offer listeners insight into the power of healing. We will bring you conversations that make you question what you know and leave you with powerful takeaways about animal and elephant welfare from a holistic point of view.

There’s more going on  (Mara Part IV)

In the first of our “Brazilian edition” episodes – our host Nadia is currently in Brazil at the sanctuary – we pick up from last time and continue to talk about Mara’s health. While her GI issues seemed to be getting better and her poop improving in quantity, size & consistency, she started to go off her food. After weeks of limited food intake, Mara laid down, making a large round shape in her abdomen visible.

With both Bambi and Rana at her side, Mara recovers and is able to stand again. Today, she is doing well but, as Kat explains, she is one of the elephants they monitor the closest. Nadia also offers listeners an insight into her daily work at the sanctuary, giving you all a look behind the scenes.
