Filmmaker, photographer, and Santuario Equidad employee Fede Sordo joined our team on Pocha and Guillermina’s transport from Mendoza to Brazil, capturing some of the images and videos we’ve shown you over the past few weeks. A couple of nights before his return home, he captured this image of the night sky over the sanctuary. As we move deeper into the dry season, the sky will become clearer and more and more stars will become visible. It is still early and the sky has yet to come into full bloom. These moments observing the stars (while hearing Pocha and Guillermina vocalizing in the background), were a nice reminder to take a few brief moments to ourselves and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us each day. Thanks to Fede for his gifts and dedication to the work we do here at Global Sanctuary for Elephants.

The beauty in the night sky is truly mesmerizing! Thank you Fede for all you’ve done to capture the beauty that surrounds the Sanctuary and those amazing gentle giants that are so fortunate to have found their forever home there in paradise with those who will respect and honor them always! 👏👏👏

I’ll give anything to see a sky like that every night. The perfect place for the girls.

Beautiful. Thanks for this.

A few stolen, precious moments to reflect on the beauty we can have if we choose wisely. I am so happy for all creatures at ESB. Thank you, Fede, for recognizing the good in ESB and joining the fight!

Starry, Starry Night. Thank you Fede Sordo for capturing this beautiful, serene photo. I can imagine looking up into that sky with the shining diamonds for stars, and hearing the vocalizations of freedom from Pocha and Guillermina. Indeed, we all need a reminder to appreciate the beauty around us every single day.

Absolutely stunning photography of a gorgeous night sky. Thank you Fede and ESB and Sara for sharing.

So very beautiful. Do elephants see colour, or just shades of grey?
Kat Blais saysJune 5, 2022 at 9:39 am
they see color- or at least that is what scientists believe due to the cones in their eyes.

I live where I’m lucky to see 10 stars at night. I would walk around 1/2 the night if I had a view like that & the icing is hearing the girls!! Enjoy, you ALL deserve it !!
