World Elephant Day
August is also a month to remember Liz, who passed on August 18, 2015 at the age of 58—a long life for an elephant in captivity.
Liz arrived at The Sanctuary in poor health after years of performing. At The Sanctuary, Liz explored far and wide, formed new and strong bonds with elephants she had not been allowed to be close to before, and lived her retirement to the fullest. Liz’s sweet demeanor endeared her to staff and Sanctuary supporters.
She is greatly missed.
