Our herd is growing!

 

As 2022 comes to a close, the eyes and hearts of the staff at The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee are cast to 2023, with the anticipation of welcoming THREE new elephants. In making the extremely important decisions regarding the next stage of life care plans for their three senior African elephants — Jana, Edie, and Tonka — our East Tennessee neighbors and Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) colleagues at Zoo Knoxville decided to transfer them to The Sanctuary, where they are ensured continued care  and  the companionship of additional elephants  for the remainder of their lives.

Your gifts to the 2022 Year End Campaign will contribute to the continued care and well-being of Sukari, Tange, Flora, Nosey, Sissy, Billie, Minnie, Debbie, and Ronnie plus the preparation to welcome and care for the three new big bodies and personalities of Jana, Edie, and Tonka.

The addition of these new residents at The Sanctuary means detailed and long-range planning, with the move of the female elephants Jana and Edie tentatively scheduled for springtime, and the arrival of Tonka later in the year. Much goes into the preparation for expanding the herd, including facilities modifications and new construction across our 3,060-acre property. But the care for our current residents is ongoing during this time.

Photos of Jana, Edie, and Tonka were provided to The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee by Zoo Knoxville.

Accommodating a bull elephant like Tonka requires big changes at The Elephant Sanctuary. Established in 1995, the first 28 years of this organization have been dedicated to facilitating home, herd, rest, refuge, and lifetime care for female Asian and African elephants coming from zoos and circuses.

Ronnie & Minnie

With heartfelt gratitude to you, our dedicated supporters, The Elephant Sanctuary will again expand our facilities in 2023 and our mission to provide sanctuary for any elephant, male or female, that will benefit from our care and commitment.

Thank you!
