The Elephant Sanctuary
The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee offers a natural habitat refuge for old, sick or needy African and Asian elephants. Its 2,700 acres in Hohenwald, Tennessee provide a better life for elephants no longer wanted by zoos or the circus. Here elephants are cared for in a natural environment without the demand to be on display or performed forced labor. You do have the option to watch them in real time on your computer through the "Elecam." If you believe elephants deserve a better life, lend your support to The Elephant Sanctuary.
