She Has a Full Schedule. Of Naps. ?



Maia continues to be very busy with her full schedule of naps. The other day at dinner, Shirlei remarked how all the elephants were sleepy except for Maia. When she mentioned to Scott how high energy Maia was, Scott had to laugh. He had been checking the cameras throughout the day and knew that Maia had taken two separate two-hour naps along the edge of the pond.

After that much relaxing, we would be worried if she wasn’t high energy!

    All this amazing nature, all this freedom, and the loving and caring of the team, it is having a healing effect on the souls of these lovely elephant ladies, I’m sure. The whole point of bringing them to the paradise-like sanctuary of course 🙂

    How we love you, Maia! You are so at ease in your surroundings, napping when you like in that fabulous habitat. Queen of all you survey. Such a beauty, captured in that wonderful photo. Shine on beautiful girl and your supporters look on in adoration.

    Adoro que Maia disfrute de siestas en los estanques!
    Además que ella ama el agua y el barro, esto es prueba de cuan relajada, cómoda y segura se siente Maia en el santuario. Hermoso!
    Gracias ESB!❤
