As a caregiver, some days with the elephants are easier than others. Part of giving elephants choice means that they can, for instance, come to breakfast all together at the same time – or it could mean that you have to seek them out individually. Nicole experienced this recently when taking a meal to Bambi, Mara, and Rana.
The three girls were down at the pond and were really relaxed. “I got there and Bambi booked it over pretty quick, followed by Mara and Rana,” Nicole said. “They spread out really nicely along the fence and it was super easy to feed them. They were so calm.” Their easy going demeanor meant that Nicole could work with Bambi on a training session without worrying about anyone else finishing their food and checking out what extra snacks might be available.
This is just one example of how elephants can truly impress you if you simply give them the space to do so. Sometimes letting them do their own thing ends up being the easiest road.

Claro ellas son tan inteligentes ! Y perceptivas que darles libre albedrio es recompensado por ellas con muchas buenas acciones.

A través de las palabras nos permiten imaginar la vida en el santuario y cada momento de las chicas. Cuando puedan compartan imagen de mí Guille. Un abrazo y buena semana.
