Isabella, the world’s loneliest elephant, has died of a broken heart.

The 46-year-old African elephant was living at the Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Center in Cameroon when she passed away.

Isabella had been the only elephant at the center for years, and her health had been in decline for some time.

center director, Erika Fleury, said that Isabella “wasn’t doing well” and that “her heart was broken.”

Isabella’s story is a tragic one, but also a reminder of the importance of companionship for all creatures, human and animal alike.

Isabella was born in the wild in 1974 and captured by hunters a few years later. She was then sold to a circus in Spain, where she spent the next 20 years of her life.

In 1994, she was rescued by animal rights activists and brought to the Cameroon sanctuary, where she was the only elephant.

For the next 25 years, Isabella was the only elephant at the center, until she was joined by another African elephant, Mia, in 2019.

Sadly, Mia died just six months later, leaving Isabella once again alone.

Isabella’s health began to decline after Mia’s death, and she was put on a special diet and given medication for her heart.

Despite the care she was receiving, Isabella’s health continued to deteriorate and she passed away on March 3, 2020.

Isabella’s story is a sad reminder of the importance of companionship for all creatures. Humans and animals alike need social interaction and companionship in order to thrive.
