Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee via Crowdrise
January 08, 2015

THANK YOU CrowdRise, craigconnects, Fred/Joanne Wilson, MacAndrews/Forbes, Isaac S. Gindi and 1387 donors for helping needy elephants in TN  See more

THE STORY:

There are grassroots efforts underway all across America to retire elephants from exhibits and entertainment to a natural habitat that provides humane care. Communities are mobilizing, and The Elephant Sanctuary wants to be ready for the next elephant in need of retirement.

Your gift to CrowdRise Holiday Challenge helps provide compassionate care, freedom to roam, companionship, safety and veterinary care for endangered elephants at The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee. Your gift also supports our Distance Learning Program and educates the next generation about the complex needs of elephants in captivity and the crisis facing elephants in the wild. Last but not least, your gift helps fund urgent needs for those thirteen elephants already in Sanctuary, and will also benefit those elephants waiting to come.

Here's an example: The elephants' 2,700-acre habitat is closed to visitors, but we can open a "virtual" door by providing digital access. So we've installed 14 cameras ("EleCams") throughout the Sanctuary that live-stream to elephants.com, where viewers can observe elephants just goinig about their day without any disturbance. Camera views average 150,000 per month! EleCams are also a key component of our web-based Distance Learning program, offered worldwide to K-12 classrooms and groups. To provide a clearer picture of the action, they need to be updated to solar-powered High Definition cameras at a cost of $4,000/each (including installation), and 13 are needed. Help share the Girls with the world by making a gift to CrowdRise Holiday Challenge!

Your gift will meet the elephants' greatest needs, and help us to better utilize today’s technology to educate others about the challenges facing both captive and wild elephants. THANK YOU for supporting The Elephant Sanctuary with a gift to the CrowdRise Holiday Challenge! Reap the heart-warming rewards of your investment by streaming live video of the Girls in their pristine Tennessee habitat, at elephants.com/EleCam.
