Ramba On Our Minds



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.

If you would like to help Ramba get to Elephant Sanctuary Brazil, you can donate here → and share her story with those who want a better life for captive elephants. To all of those already giving and sharing-

    I love that Ramba is sporting a new hat! Always good for a laugh. I have been hoping we would have all the funds by the fifteenth of September. I hope most donors will be planning to donate once or twice more in next two-three weeks, as I will, for final push. Of course I am selfish, as I want Pocha, Guillermina and Kenya in sanctuary, Carla too. That will be next fund raiser. You two are the best. Keep your spirits up and take a moment of rest!

    Ramba deserves the sanctuary and happiness and freedom!! She is still on her life’s journey to the sanctuary. She needs
    attention just like all of the elephants who have been in prison since leaving their hearts and home lands!!
    Bless their hearts!!
