Two Elephants Freed From Concrete Pit 

The story of these elephants is a poignant one, illustrating the devastating impact of poaching on wildlife

The elder elephant was stolen from the wild and imported into a zoo that  lacked the capacity and space to provide a suitable environment

For 20 years, she lived in one of the most confined spaces imaginable, devoid of any semblance of the natural world.

Both the elder elephant and her daughter were trapped in this concrete pit

deprived of the freedom to explore wild vegetation, graze on lush grass, and feel the earth beneath their feet

Their plight was a stark reminder of the consequences of human exploitation and the urgent need for change.

People in Argentine cities rallied together, voicing their discontent and demanding better treatment for these captive elephants

They recognized that it was time to make a profound change, providing  these magnificent animals with a chance to experience a new life

The transformation began at the Mendoza Zoo, with a commitment to  sending as many animals as possible to sanctuaries around the world

The first step was to liberate the elephants from their concrete prison  and give them a chance to live in a space that would nurture their  growth and well-being.

The process of liberating these elephants was deliberate, focusing on their comfort and readiness for a life beyond captivity
