Sunday Smile: Sleepy Rana

On this New Year’s Day, we might all be starting the morning (or afternoon) off as sleepy as Rana is here. She greets Scott, who holds her nose for a bit as they share a quiet moment together, respecting the peaceful place she is in. We’re sending you wishes for a healthy day of rest and repose, as well as some reflection – a welcome opportunity for us all. 

P.S.: A sincere thank you to each and every one of you who donated to our End of Year Campaign. We exceeded our $144,000 goal of covering the expected annual cost of care for Guillermina, Rana, and Mara with an incredible total of $169,036. Your appreciation and love for the elephants seems to know no bounds and we are grateful to begin a new journey together in 2023. Best wishes from all of us at Global Sanctuary for Elephants.

    Really special donators 🙏 especially the $5 $10 $15 people because that’s probably a lot from their budget.
