After a night of wandering, Rana made her way to breakfast with Maia, both having spent the evening in Yard 5. You can see that she seems a little sleepy after her big adventure, but is enjoying her special snacks and may just take a nap later. This is all part of the beauty of sanctuary life – the space to wander, the opportunity day and night, to make decisions on your own, and the peaceful environment to rest and relax whenever you want.

Sara saysMarch 22, 2023 at 9:31 pm
We do have a drone. We just didn’t feel we needed to use it in this instance.

Jeanine saysMarch 22, 2023 at 10:12 pm

In the wild, are female elephants able to enjoy such pure relaxation? They must always be on the lookout for predators, for water and food or for a male elephant wanting to mate. I have seen African elephants lolling in the ponds in Kenya, but I am sure they must always have an eye open for some hungry nearby beast who wants to eat their babies. If you can generalize, I am just wondering how the behavior of elephants in the wild differs from a Sanctuary elephant. (assuming the Sanctuary elephant has healed most of the psychological scars from years of captivity) Thank you.
Sara saysMarch 22, 2023 at 11:53 pm
That’s not really a question we can answer. Many elephants in captivity have lived lives of abuse and neglect. Their lives have never resembled those of wild elephants, so we can’t say how behaviors differ because it’s an incredibly individual thing for each elephant. The elephants at sanctuary do bond but don’t necessarily form a herd as they would in the wild. Many psychological scars never heal and captive elephant lives may be lived in search of that healing.
