Scott With All Five Elephants

As we mentioned yesterday, the five elephants here at Elephant Sanctuary Brazil have been spending more time near one another, though the distance between them varies depending on the situation. Here you can see Rana and Mara enjoying some hay. Guillermina, who had been standing with them, decided she would cross over and see her other friends, Bambi and Maia, who were standing some meters away. 

But keep an eye on Guille – because here she comes again, heading back in the other direction! These older girls don’t really try to keep up with her, because it would be hard to maintain pace with a 25-year-old, even on the best of days. In this video, Scott talks about the recent cooler weather and the relationship changes we’ve seen unfolding in the past weeks. All-in-all, it’s interesting to watch the dynamics. Who knows what will unfold next?

    It would be nice to see some MALE elephants walking across the screen. And what about the African Elephants waiting in the zoos to be rescued???? is GSE unable to afford to care for MORE elephants? It used to be thought to be that those other elephants who were on the rescue list would be at GSE in a couple of years…what is happening????

      We’ve been open about what is happening. There are permit issues that we’ve been working with the government on for over a year. It is not a financial issue, as we’ve explained.

    She’s funny! It’s as if she’s saying, “In case you missed me the first pass Scott, I’ll give you another go.” Cheeky girl.

    I always have the shortest comment–I am mad about them, wild about them, and pray for Tamy being able to get here and all the other big beautiful precious babies who are waiting. Love you all!!!

      The temperatures we’re having now have been slightly cooler than normal, but the rain ended early. So everything will be hot and dry soon.

    So adorable to see “Guille”‘s eye go towards Scott’s greeting. She looks, very, healthy and a good weight!
