Global Sanctuary for Elephants

Mission Statement

Mission: Protecting, rescuing, and providing sanctuary for elephants worldwide.

Global Sanctuary for Elephants exists to create a nurturing home where rescued elephants feel safe, allowing them to process and heal from the emotional and physical traumas of their past.
The space, freedom, unconditional love and respect sanctuary provides simply cannot be duplicated. Sanctuary is the only true healthy option for elephants in captivity. That is why we need your support to make sanctuary life a reality for elephants around the globe.

Our pilot project, Elephant Sanctuary Brazil, is situated on 2,800 acres of incredibly diverse property in the municipality of Chapada dos Guimar√£es, Brazil. It is the only sanctuary for elephants in Latin America and one of of only three worldwide accredited by Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries.

Elephant Sanctuary Brazil is currently home to five resident elephants: Maia, Rana, Lady, Mara, and Bambi who live in the Asian female habitat. The intention of the sanctuary is to house elephants of both species (African and Asian) and gender. Each species will have their own habitat (due to issues with cross-species socialization) and the males of each species are housed separately from the females. In order to provide enough space for each species we must expand our steel fencing. The more fencing we build, the more elephants we can rescue. Elephants are waiting and we need your help in building their future.

Please make a donation today to help us purchase the equipment needed to build more fencing and save more lives.
