Elephant Sanctuary Center

The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee is the USA's largest natural habitat refuge for elephants retired from the entertainment industry. While the Sanctuary itself doesn't allow visitors (allowing the elephants to roam free), it does have a welcome center in downtown Hohenwald that anyone can visit and learn more about the plight of these intelligent and beautiful animals. The center includes live video of the Sanctuary grounds and its elephants (from 13 different cameras), interactive exhibits, and and life-size elephant made of recycled tires.
