There are a little more than 50 elephants in South America. While we know that not all of these will come to live at Elephant Sanctuary Brazil, the space and facility design could accommodate all of these elephants. As for the exact number, we are here to help as many as we can and to care for any elephant in need of refuge. Circuses will soon be banned throughout most of the continent, some zoos are facing budget crises and are housing rapidly aging elephants with increased health complications. Elephant Sanctuary Brazil has the space, knowledge and direct experience to provide critical and long-term care for any elephant.
