The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee


The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee, founded in 1995, is the nation’s largest natural-habitat refuge developed specifically for African and Asian elephants. Accredited by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS), The Sanctuary operates on 2,700 acres in Hohenwald, TN – 85 miles southwest of Nashville.

The Sanctuary exists for two reasons:

  • Provide captive elephants with individualized care, the companionship of a herd, and the opportunity to live out their lives in a safe haven dedicated to their wellbeing.
  • Raise public awareness of the complex needs of elephants in captivity, and the crisis facing elephants in the wild.

There are LIVE camera feeds where you can watch the animals 24/7
