Update on Mara’s Rescue Timeframe

Rana

As announced in December, Mara from the Buenos Aries Ecoparque will be coming to Elephant Sanctuary Brazil.  Initially, both our team and the team at the Buenos Aries Ecoparque hoped she would be arriving late January/ early February. As it’s already February, we know an update is overdue… Unfortunately, the update is that we have no update.

Mara’s process is still waiting on one final ok from Argentina. Once they have that, she will be ready to begin the next step:  her 30-day in facility quarantine. For the worriers out there, Mara has her CITES permits, that part is done. This is just a small step, but a necessary one.

Thanks to the team of positive-reinforcement trainers at the Ecoparque, Mara is fully trained for all of the procedures she needs during the quarantine period (which include injections, trunk wash, and blood draws). We expect her transport will take 4-5 days (the distance is about the same as Rana’s transport). This means, at any point, she will be about 30-days away from transport, and 5 additional days from her forever home with Maia, Rana, and Lady. Once we have a date, we look forward to sharing it with all of you.

    One never knows about how Mara will fit in with the 3 sisters awaiting her arrival. One thing we do know is that Mara’s life will forever be changed for the better when she arrives at ESB. Can’t wait! Thanks for updates

    Thank you to Mara’s pos reinforcement training. Great achievement! Buenos Aries Ecoparque – thank you for doing everything you are able to to bring a successful fast relocation of Mara to Global Elephants. I really hope that you can be part of the audience getting updates, and logging in to globalelephants.org to see how Mara is getting on. Huge “blessings” on you for doing what’s right.
