About this organization
Mission: Protecting, rescuing, and providing sanctuary for elephants worldwide. Thousands of captive elephants in zoos and circuses around the world are suffering. Year after year of isolation, restraint, malnutrition, abuse and lack of adequate exercise and proper medical care exact a harsh physical and psychological toll on these highly intelligent sensitive and social creatures. These elephants are in need of sanctuary, but too few exist to be able to care for them all. GSE exists to create vast safe spaces for captive elephants, where they are able to heal physically and emotionally from the traumas of captivity. Our pilot project is Elephant Sanctuary Brazil, the first and only elephant sanctuary in Latin America.
OUR FOUNDING DIRECTORS ARE WORKING ON LOCATION IN BRAZIL, OVERSEEING THE DEVELOPMENT OF ELEPHANT SANCTUARY BRAZIL AND ESTABLISHING A FOUNDATION THAT IS IN ALIGNMENT WITH THE CORE VALUES OF GLOBAL SANCTUARY FOR ELEPHANTS ("GSE"). THEY HAVE ATTRACTED INTERNATIONAL SUPPORT AND ARE RECRUITING AND TRAINING CORE TEAM MEMBERS IN BRAZIL TO RUN SANCTUARY OPERATIONS. PRESENTLY, PREPARATIONS ARE BEING MADE FOR THE TRANSFER OF 8 ELEPHANTS FROM ARGENTINA, 1 FROM CHILE AND 3 FROM WITHIN BRAZIL. HAVING OUR WORLD RENOWNED FOUNDING DIRECTORS ON THE GROUND IN BRAZIL IS PIVOTAL TO PROVIDING HANDS-ON EXPERTISE AND RECOGNITION FOR ELEPHANT CARE AND TRUSTWORTHY OPERATIONS NECESSARY TO BUILD ELEPHANT SANCTUARY BRAZIL INTO A SELF SUSTAINABLE AND POSITIVELY IMPACTFUL ORGANIZATION FOR ELEPHANTS THROUGHOUT SOUTH AMERICA.
