Scott is currently in Buenos Aires ensuring that Mara’s transport crate is set up properly. Her relocation to Elephant Sanctuary Brazil is expected to occur in late March or early April. She still must undergo a 30-day quarantine prior to her international transport. The EcoParque requested her transport crate be there and available during her entire quarantine period, not just the last week as is typical with our rescues and transports.
As many viewers have noticed, her right ankle does not go down straight, it’s on a bit of an angle. It’s related to an old injury that did not heal properly. It does not seem to affect her movement, only her gait. It definitely does not affect her cuteness – as everyone can see, she is very, very cute.
