Paula and Kristi were the results of a promise we made to our beloved little elephant Lisa, who we lost in in Dec. of 2006. Our promise was to continue offering a home and a retirement to captive elephants in need of such. The kind of home Lisa enjoyed and benefitted from.
Yesterday, Buffy was standing outside the empty barn, hoping and waiting for Lisa to come out. Upon the arrival of Paula and Kristi, Buffy is now teaming up with both wherever they go. She has taken a special interest in Kristi who coincidentally, has a very similar appearance to Lisa. Butch remains the typical male elephant. He dines on his own and visits the females occasionally but the bottom line is that our herd is very happy and healing well from our tragic loss.
A VERY SPECIAL THANKS to EARS director Suzi Greenburg and her husband Bobby Greenburg for being the key ingredient to making this project possible.
