Ramba has to know how endearing she is
This little lady has been on our mind a lot lately, not just because of all of the work on the logistics of her rescue, but also in regards to how she will fit in with Maia and Rana. We go into every new elephant rescue with no expectations, but knowing Ramba a little more than is normal, we can’t help but go through the hundreds of possibilities in our heads.
What we do know is that every new arrival changes the dynamics of the herd. And that part of the mental and emotional stimulation that sanctuary offers is allowing elephants to become part of a herd. We also know two doesn’t make a herd, and it’s time for our group to grow.
No matter how things unfold, it’s all part of the bigger picture of growth, healing, and elephants reconnecting to the core of what an elephant is. It isn’t always easy, but as Adam Braun said: “True self-discovery begins where your comfort zone ends.” And the autonomy of sanctuary and the relationships the elephants build allows them to figure out who they really are for the first time in their lives.
