Elephant Sanctuary Brazil is the first sanctuary of its kind in South America that's a refuge of healing and recovery for captive elephants that have endured endless suffering for human entertainment. By nature, elephants are socially dynamic, immeasurably intelligent and emotionally complex beings living within expansive family groups. Captivity has taken all of this away, leaving elephants, injured and traumatized. SEB exists to give back, providing an expansive natural habitat and offering the autonomy, respect and compassionate care necessary to recover and thrive. For these lucky few, the sanctuary is a chance to rediscover what it means to be an elephant.
