The rains have returned to Elephant Sanctuary Brazil, and everyone seems to be a little lighter because of it. The people, the elephants, dogs, the birds, the insects – everyone’s moods appear to be shifting. This also means that the fire risk is reduced, which is a welcome occurrence. In nearby Chapada dos Guimarães, they are still waiting for rain, though we’ve had 4-5 good storms so far. Things are beginning to turn green already – a welcome sight to be sure.
A few days ago, we were working with Rana in the treatment chute when it started to rain. Normally, she enjoys hanging out in the chute and eating as many snacks as she can get. But when the rain started, she got a warm smile on her face and could not wait to leave and go find (or make) a mud wallow. We expect to see muddy, cheerful elephants all around the sanctuary in the days to come – which brings all of us a sense of peace and contentment.
