As a young nonprofit, GSE’s growth essentially determines how many elephants we can help. To provide a natural life, sanctuary requires vast fenced in stretches of land. As we work to give homes to more elephants, there is a never-ending need for funding. By expanding, we can offer sanctuary to more elephants, since wild spaces provide natural food and built-in stimulation. Elephants need vast expanses in order to heal and to create social bonds; appropriately sized habitats can self-sustain when given the opportunity to regrow green grasses, trees, and vegetation.
The JEM Project clearly understands this reality and has shown a commitment to our mission at Global Sanctuary For Elephants – providing us with a generous grant dedicated to expansion of the female African habitat. Their gift will provide a direct impact on our ability to welcome elephants to sanctuary for years to come. We want to express our deepest gratitude to them for their willingness to support us as we grow and influence more lives along the way.
The JEM Project serves to support animal welfare programs, among other important causes, to create lasting solutions for animals – and we are honored by their dedication to developing space for elephants to renew their sense of selves and heal on a holistic level.
