The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee

Elephants can't speak for themselves to tell us what they need; it's up to us to care enough to find out all about them so that people find a passion for protecting this unique species. In this session, we learn about the three kinds of elephants, two of which call the Elephant Sanctuary their retirement home. We will learn a lot of fun information about their diet, their personalities, habits, and body adaptations! The Elephant Sanctuary is the place where elephants go to find peace and enjoyment, much like how our own sanctuaries make us feel. You can take a look at LIVE elephant cams here and learn more about the sanctuary here. Learn more about African Elephants (in general) here.
