We want to keep you informed about some of what goes on behind the scenes with Ramba’s rescue. Don’t worry, we will keep posting about our other two lovely ladies as well. There are always a lot of questions and many unknowns involved in elephant rescues, so we will try to share. For those who have been following us for some time, you know transparency and supporter involvement are extremely important to us.
The task of the day today was applying for ‘jump seats’ for the cargo plane. Ramba will be flying on a cargo plane, and to accompany her during her flight, we have to get permission to use the jump seats in the back of the aircraft. Only two are available, so Scott and our vet/caregiver Laura are applying.
The seats are generally like the little fold-down seats flight attendants sit on during landing and takeoff. This will allow us to monitor Ramba directly during her flight and to be there to comfort and assure her. Approval takes 4-6 weeks, which is why their applications were submitted as soon as possible.
Just one of the many steps needed to bring Ramba home safely to Elephant Sanctuary Brazil.
