Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee via Crowdrise
December 27, 2013
Since 1995, The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee has provided refuge to 24 retired elephants. Here, they find an environment where they can thrive in the community of a herd. Nothing illustrates that better than the milestone birthdays we celebrated for several of our Girls this year, including Tange, an African elephant who turned 40, Dulary, an Asian elephant who turned 50, and our Asian matriarch Shirley, who turned 65!

The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee is the nation’s largest natural-habitat refuge developed specifically for endangered elephants. It is located 85 miles southwest of Nashville in Hohenwald, and provides a 2,700-acre haven for Asian and African elephants retired from zoos and circuses, as well as education about the crisis facing this sensitive and exceedingly intelligent species.
