    This video is wonderful. It makes such a difference to donate when you see real people (and elephants!) on the other end – not just some faceless entity. This is why so many support you!

    Pretty amazing how many people step up with $$. but your passion for these creatures is amazing also. I have a question. How do elephants’ feet fare in the wild? are they generally fine because they are always on the move? which would keep their nails and soles trim and strong and healthy?

      Yes, feet in the wild do great. Just like any other species, their bodies are essentially designed to live in their natural habitat. African feet are different than Asian feet. Africans tend to do better in captivity with their feet because of this. They are savannah dwellers, used to harder more compact surfaces. Their feet spread out a little bit more when they step on them. Asians tend to have a harder time in captivity because their natural habitat tends to be humid soft substrate with a lot of moisture. Then in captivity they get put on sand or concrete and they don’t do so well. So yes, foot issues in the wild aren’t a problem. It’s a captive problem.

    To help with donations and guardianship is my small part in giving these elephants the life they deserve. You care about your supporters, too, and keep us very well informed about the sanctuary and its amazing inhabitants. Thank you a million times over for all you do. I will always be there for you.
