Many Thanks – Today and Always


This journey isn’t always an easy one- for the elephants, for those of us here working to provide them with this life, and you at home. Some days the challenges seem neverending. But, through it all, we have been so grateful to know we are not alone in this, that there are many of you out there that adore the girls and stand behind them and us. Without you, this place doesn’t exist. And with you, our spirits are lifted on difficult days and the girls receive an outpouring of love from around the world. For all of you, and everything you do for our elephants and others around the globe- Thank you. Truly.  Kat & Scott

    Of course I’m not crying. It’s allergies. God bless allow you! I truly believe that there are elephants in heaven. If not, I don’t want to be there. I think they have extra large clouds and wings for these magnificent beings,!!

    You and the girls are most certainly welcome, and we thank you for all that you do. Happy Thanksgiving, and thanks for the beautiful poster-worthy photo! The sky almost looks like Northern Lights. Who is the lovely lady featured?

    Actually, we should be thanking you! You bring so much joy – in a world that can often seem short of it.

    Happy Thanksgiving Day to you all. For all the bad places elephants can be all over the world, it’s a blessing to watch your happy sanctuary herd day in day out. Many hands and hearts sharing the same compassion.

    You are right about saying many of us adore the girls. I couldn’t have chosen a better word to describe our feelings. But without you guys none of this beautiful life would be possible. Thank you and enjoy the holidays!

    Scott & Kat, and the entire GSE team: how do we convey to you what you and the girls – & the very idea that GSE even exists – enriches our lives, immeasurably?
    I cannot imagine the hard work, frustration, setbacks and heartache that you experience. Yet you take the time to bring all of us along on your magical carpet ride.
    So, we thank YOU! ❤️

    I’m pretty weepy, too. I know you guys work so hard. I am filled with gratitude for your work and for how close you bring us to the elephants. You know we all love them madly. Whatever I might do to assist might not be much, but I am so grateful for being able to give my little mite! All my love to every human and elephant.
