🐘The E l e p h a n t is a symbol of strength, power, stability and wisdom.
Elephant statues are popular worldwide. It is common superstition that an elephant carving or picture should always face the door if you want to bring good luck into the house.
It also protects the home when facing the entrance making sure only good fortune passes through.
L O V E E L E P H A N T S ❤️ PROTECT THEM TOO 🙏🏻
The arrival of a four-year-old (which is much older than our average elephant rescue) generated a lot of interest among the orphans, as this trunk inspection hints at! Although he is a burly bull, Namalok is also quite shy. It took him a long time to settle in and trust the Keepers – so long, in fact, that we suspect he had a bad experience with humans prior to his rescue – but luckily, he had no such trouble making elephant friends. He immediately hit it off with fellow Nursery seniors Sapalan (who is another September rescue) and Kauro, spending lots of time browsing further afield with them and playing pushing games. Yesterday, he and his newfound best friends graduated to our Ithuba Reintegration Unit, where we know that they will support each other as they work towards an eventual return to the wild.
