The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee is a non-profit dedicated to providing a home, herd, rest, refuge, and individualized care for life for captive elephants.
Currently, the sanctuary houses 13 elephants who have retired from zoos and circuses. The sanctuary provides them with a new home where they can get the medical and behavioral treatment they need to live out the rest of their lives in peace.
When you arrive at the site, you’ll find more about the sanctuary on the main page if you scroll down, but you can also check out the About Us page from the navigation strip at the top of the page.
Notice on the main page, the ELECAM, if you click into that section you can check out the three habitats that they have setup and see what the elephants are up to. The habits are the African Habitat, the Asian Habitat, and the Q Habitat. If you click the Learn More button, you can discover the individual elephants at the sanctuary. Or you can click on the habitat name and have the elephants divided up by the location they live in.
