Today is Scott’s last day at the Buenos Aires EcoParque before returning to Elephant Sanctuary Brazil tomorrow.
This was a brief trip to Argentina to help Mara begin to acclimate to her transport crate and begin her 30-day quarantine period, which is required prior to international transport. Mara is believed to be in her early-to-mid 50s and is slated to be transported to Brazil in late March or early April.
Scott and our team will return at the end of March to transport Mara to Elephant Sanctuary Brazil. As of today, she showed everyone how stellar and brave she was and has fully entered the crate with all four feet inside!

(Both videos were taken today at Ecoparque Buenos Aires with Mara. The one above was the first one taken this morning. The one below was taken a little later in the morning.)
