￼We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. In a world older and more complete than ours, they are more finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other Nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth.

Ross Cuper Photography “Goals in life may seem far, however it depends on how you approach them. This young elephant calf was deserted and adopted by another female elephant. They were not with a herd, as the calf was unable to walk for long distances due to what appeared to be poor development in its back legs. With limited walking abilities the calf maintained its goal of survival and continued to follow the adopted mother.”
