How do you care for and communicate with the world's largest land animal? On this World Elephant Day, join The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee to discover what it takes to be an elephant Caregiver, from prepping specialized diets to building trust with these giants. The Elephant Sanctuary is home to 10 elephants retired from zoos and circuses who depend on their Caregivers to daily individualized care so they can live their life to the fullest in 2,700 acres of natural habitat in Hohenwald, Tennessee. During this live event we’ll take you through the daily routine of an elephant Caregiver and share with you some of our favorite elephant facts. We’ll also virtually peek into The Sanctuary habitats via our live-streaming EleCams and hopefully spot some of our resident elephants enjoying their retirement. Join us and learn if you have what it takes to be an elephant Caregiver on Thursday August 12th.
Recommended Age Range: 7-12, but are all welcome.
