Adopt an Elephant

Created in 2012 to celebrate and honor elephants all over the globe, August 12 is World Elephant Day. This is a time to bring awareness to the challenges African and Asian elephants face today, both in the wild and in captivity, and it is a reminder we must take action to ensure they are protected. To learn more, visit World Elephant Day.org.

World Elephant Day is the perfect time to support organizations that are building natural habitat sanctuaries, conserving elephant habitats, improving enforcement policies to prevent the illegal poaching and trade of ivory, and advocating for better treatment for captive elephants.

Adopt an Elephant today and support the work of The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee!
