History of The Wild Horizons Elephant Sanctuary
In the begining …
With an uncontested, unwavering conservation ethic, Wild Horizons was identified as an ideal candidate to create a facility that would enhance the lives of the founding four elephants and provide a space for other elephants in need of care. We were able to offer these amazing creatures a home where they are dignified and comfortable living in harmony with nature. The Wild Horizons Elephant Orphanage was founded and has been a safe haven to a myriad of orphaned and injured elephants. We strongly believe that ultimately the best environment for all elephant is in the wild and we strive to ensure that as many animals as possible return to a wild environment.
Wild Horizons invests extensively in the sanctuary in order to ensure that the best quality of life is offered to the elephants. In the process we aid the conservation efforts of the country and contribute to worldwide expertise on the most effective ways of caring for orphaned elephant. We work hard to raise public awareness and educate future generations about the importance of conservation. We have physically and metaphorically journeyed with these elephants and gained a unique insight along the way.
