Sopa is one of the newest rescues at Elephant Nature Park and is 82 years old. She was rescued May 20th 2023 by Save Elephant Foundation with the assistance of funds raised by Elephants Austin and other nonprofits. Sopa’s history is unpleasant. When Sopa was a teenager she labored in the log industry for decades, then her owner brought her to work in the tourist camps. She despised this job and when tourists came to sit on her back she would shake the chair. Needless to say, we are happy to see Grandma SoPa spend her freedom at ENP in her golden years. SoPa doesn’t have a herd yet as she is just now finding her feet, so all of her fostering funds will go straight to her care. We look forward to seeing who she settles with!
