Donate to Lucky's Golden Years!
Lucky was the second elephant to join our herd and she is also the oldest. Lucky was retired in a joint effort by Direct Aid Nepal and Association Moey. She is a slow old girl and this shows in her pink face. As elephants age they begin to lose the pigment in their face and trunk area. Due to her old age we don’t know exactly when she was born but we believe it to be in the late 1940’s. Lucky worked all of her life in the logging industry in India and then the tourism industry in Nepal until she could no longer support the weight of the box used to carry people on her back. She has settled in nicely to the herd and become Auntie to little Samrat.
