Just 30 miles southwest of Nashville in rural Tennessee a 2,700-acre elephant sanctuary harbors 15 rescued elephants. CNN features a wonderful short video on the 14 year old refuge, supplemented with this brief article for more detail. You should also make a point of visiting the Elephant Sanctuary’s website here.

For additional information about elephants, you may also wish to see the Elephant Facts and Information Database or the Elephant Encyclopedia.

Oh, and there’s a fascinating collection of elephant gestures and voices at ElephantVoices.

  1. That sanctuary is a complete waste of space. It sucks tons of tax dollars out of the budget and yet no one can come and see the elephants if they want to look and learn about them. Why? Because the tree huggers want to let the poor elephats be at peace? All those tax dollars so 15 pachyderms can be free? What’s the point?

    • Perhaps you should have read the article, which clearly notes that the sanctuary receives NO TAX DOLLARS, but is supported exclusively by “private donations and corporate sponsorships.”
