Review for Global Sanctuary For Elephants, Brentwood, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

While I have followed sanctuaries for animals all over the world, as well as participating in regional rescues, I have never come across any establishment quite like the magical, charming, engaging & educational Global Sanctuary For Elephants in Brazil.
What Scott & Kat Blasis have created through their tireless dedication is a tranquil place of healing for these gentle giants, who have endured so many decades of cruelty.
Watching Lady, Bambi, Rana, Mara & Maia rediscover what it is like to be a true elephant, to explore natures' beauty is a wonder to behold. Seeing their traumatized souls become happy once again, as indicated through their joyous trumpeting, loud squeaks & gentle rumbles lets us all know they have found true peace as they embrace their senior years.
Knowing these elephants are older, that their longevity may be short, demonstrates the epitome of love & generosity of spirit because the faithful caregivers engage these challenges knowing full well the heartbreak that will eventually result. In doing so these remarkable founders, employees & volunteers risk many emotions because they realize the tears they may one day shed are not a sign of weakness, merely an indication of total love & commitment to this most worthy cause.
Yet still they continue changing the world, one elephant at a time, demonstrating the best that humanity has to offer.
I highly recommend following & donating to The Global Sanctuary For Elephants in Brazil for all they do to make the world a truly better place, as well as allowing all of us the opportunity to share this amazing journey on these life changing paths of healing through the informative, sensitive & eloquently stated postings which they generously share each day.

Review for Global Sanctuary For Elephants, Brentwood, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Global Sanctuary For Elephants in Brazil serves as an inspiration for the entire world by demonstrating the epitome of kindness & patience, in addition to providing an educational service to all generations as to the plight of captive elephants. Their in depth knowledge of elephants combined with the diligence they put forth in regards to their health needs results in a remarkable healing process time after time. Watching what Scott & Kat accomplish through their dedication to these creatures; seeing the elephants' trauma slowing replaced with trust & awe as they learn to simply live their senior years the way nature intended; observing their wonderment unfold alittle each day in peaceful sanctuary is a miraculous journey indeed! I, along with others who watch their website, continue to encourage people to become involved with this worthy cause so that one day all elephants will be free from captivity. GSE provides a crucial service in accomplishing this goal due to their expertise & knowledge, the ability to articulate their successful endeavors, all the while continuing to disseminate the progress within the sanctuary on a daily basis. Scott, Kat & their hard working staff serve as outstanding caregivers to these magnificent creatures, as well as noteworthy ambassadors by articulating so beautifully the emotions of the elephants through their website, which actually makes one feel as if they are there within the lush forest. It is a rare gift indeed to be able to sense the feelings of an elephant, as well as so eloquently relay their stories to us humans; but they manage to do so everyday, sharing a little piece of magic & joy along the way, making the world a better place for all mankind.
