“Bubbles, 32, was adopted as a ivory orphan by the Myrtle Beach Safari in 1983. As Bubbles grew over the years, from 300 pounds to 9000 pounds, so too did her love of swimming. In 2007, a contractor hired to build Bubbles a swimming pool, abandoned Bella as a puppy at The Preserve. The river presented these two the opportunity to interact in a way that developed a deep and lasting friendship. Today, they are inseparable.
Bubbles’ family was killed in 1981 by ivory poachers. She was one of the fortunate few that survived the slaughter. Today, tens of thousands of elephants are still be illegally poached for their ivory.”
Thank you Janet.
