"The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee exists to provide captive elephants with individualized care, the companionship of a herd, and the opportunity to live out their lives in a safe haven dedicated to their well-being, and to raise public awareness of the complex needs of elephants in captivity, and the crisis facing elephants in the wild. Located on 2,700 acres in Hohenwald, TN, The Elephant Sanctuary is the largest natural habitat refuge in the country dedicated solely to the care of African and Asian elephants retired from zoos and circuses across North America. As a true sanctuary, the elephant habitats are closed to the public and all the elephants are retired from their lives of performance and exhibition. Through their distance learning program, The Sanctuary reaches thousands of students and adults each year to share the mission of The Sanctuary and the stories of their resident elephants. Using photos, lives-streaming video and storytelling, a member of The Sanctuary's education team will offer a virtual glimpse into the daily life of elephants at The Sanctuary and answer all of your elephant related questions.
