Review for Global Sanctuary For Elephants, Brentwood, TN, USA
I first came across Global Sanctuary for Elephants at the time I was first becoming aware of the abuse of elephants in the tourist industry and feeling that somehow I wanted to help. GSE at that time were still building the sanctuary, then all of a sudden there were two elephants that needed rescuing almost immediately and here was something I could do, help this happen! Over time, they’ve become my favourite organisation in this field because of the way they carry us all along with them, sharing, explaining, teaching us about the inadequacies of captivity (numerous) and the healing powers of sanctuary (infinite). Kat and Scott Blais, the founders, are remarkable people and have amassed a huge following, all of us equally determined to help undo some of the wrongs meted out to elephants - one of the most intelligent, sentient non human species on the planet - and give them back their birthright; autonomy, the company of their own kind and the environment to be what they were always meant to be. There is much to be done for the world’s elephants if they are to survive in the hostile world humans have created, but Global Sanctuary for Elephants is leading the way and has given us all hope.
