Visit our site

Increasing public knowledge is key to creating a world where elephants no longer live under constant threat of poaching, habitat loss, conflict, or capture. The Sanctuary's Elephant Discovery Center offers hands-on, self-guided exhibits that teach visitors about the differences between the species and the ecological role elephants play in the wild, and tell the stories of the elephants that reside at The Sanctuary.

Please call 931-796-6500 ext 101 or email to plan your visit. 

All elephants reside within The Sanctuary’s 2,700 acres of habitat nearby, retired from public view. There are no elephants at the Discovery Center or Outdoor Classroom.
