With most of the talk about Ramba’s rescue, we still want to share the other two lovelies already here at the sanctuary. Today is Rana’s turn. No matter how many years and how many elephants you work with, each day is still full of moments of amazement and beauty. The perfect light, a cute smile, a silly hay hat, sleepy softness-snippets of time that repeatedly cause you to become more present and connected.
It is during those times, that even to us, the healing ability of sanctuary is almost unfathomable. We live it, and we see the difference it makes (otherwise we wouldn’t be here), but every elephant seems to uncover a different layer of how sanctuary saves them. And for this property, it’s not just the elephants, it’s all of the wildlife who have found a natural and protected space amongst the cattle and agricultural farms.
It may sound hokey to some, but when you are here, looking upon the property and feeling this home, there is no doubt this land is sacred. We thank you for helping us create this refuge and for all of the elephants you have and will help share this life with.
