It's August, and everyone is ready for a vacation, so this month, we're doing something a bit different for SFBayPUG—a virtual visit to the Elephant Sanctuary of Tennessee!
Sanctuary educator Morgan Kaelin will bring the Sanctuary to us via photos, Q & A, and live-streaming EleCams in the elephant habitats! We'll be able to visit the elephants from the comfort of our own spaces, without disturbing these wonderful creatures.
Schedule (Note the Start Time!):
11:00 AM Announcements, speaker introduction, presentation, Q&A.
11:55 AM Closing announcements, wrap up.
12:00 PM Event ends.
Link for the online meeting room will be sent the day before the event.
ABOUT THE ELEPHANT SANCTUARY:
Since 1995, The Sanctuary has provided refuge for 28 elephants who are retired from zoos and circuses. There are currently 11 elephant residents with room for more. The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee began on 110 acres and has grown to three separate and protected, natural habitats, spanning over more than 2,700 acres.
The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee provides elephants retired from entertainment and exhibition with herd, home, and individualized veterinary and husbandry care for life. Elephants that have lived their lives in captivity have an opportunity at The Sanctuary to live in an expansive habitat that allows for a range of natural behaviors.
The Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and is accredited by The Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries, certified by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums and is licensed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency.
