One evening after dinner, Scott caught Rana, Mara, and Bambi on a short stroll as the sun was setting. It’s a point of view that we rarely see, with the elephants fully in silhouette. Rana gets a close-up in the end, which clearly shows her soft and lovely face.
We recommend listening with the volume up, so that you can hear a little Mara squeak at the beginning. The green dot in the video is a reflection of the lens from the camera.
P.S.: Don’t worry – Scott took this from a safe distance. The camera was zoomed in during filming.

Fantastic video. I love the close-up at the end. It gives a true perspective on their size, grace and incredibleness. Thank you!

Nice video. Its nice to see the elephants strolling along……..NOW could you please give us an update on the coronavirus situation in South America and the relationship between Brazil and Argentina, especially when it comes to border crossings……… 6 elephants are waiting to come to their forever home……..

Kenneth, the last post we wrote about the transport of Pocha and Guillermina explained that he hold-up is primarily due to the need for paperwork to be processed by outside agencies and agencies being closed due to the holidays. It is not due to border crossings. If you would like to read more, please look at our post (https://globalelephants.org/mendoza-mail-what-we-know-today/).
Until bureaucratic processes move forward – and we cannot force that aspect – we cannot transport anyone.

Exquisite video with the silhouette. Thank you so much.

Thank you for sharing this beauty with us! It’s good for my soul to see this today!

Great video! “A safe distance” do you think Rana would ever hurt Scott? I don’t, but what do I know.
Sara saysJanuary 11, 2022 at 4:26 pm
Though we have wonderful relationships with the elephants, they are still wild animals with traumatic pasts. We hope nothing like that wouldn’t happen, but such things have happened before. So, yes, it is always possible. As we always say: hope for the best and plan for the worst.

Magnificent view of such a magnificent Ranabug and friends. Love the squeak from Mara. Sanctuary is truly heaven on earth for these beauties.

Beautiful scene with the sunlight behind them

What a peaceful note for those gentle beauties to take to bed. Perchance to dream!
Sara saysJanuary 11, 2022 at 8:11 pm
And what dreams may come? Hopefully only the best.

Rana , perhaps thinking to herself…..”not all who wander are lost; for as far as my [smiling ] eyes can see, this is HOME and I get to share it every day with my bestest friends !” And that’s a perfect day❤️🐘❤️
SC saysJanuary 13, 2022 at 12:04 am
AMEN to that … ❤️🐘❤️
Cheers from Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada!

Nobody can dance like Miss Rana. Love the little green fairy. 💚
