The Elephant Discovery Center

The Elephant Discovery Center



Increasing public knowledge is key to creating a world where elephants no longer live under constant threat of poaching, habitat loss, conflict, or capture. The Elephant Discovery Center offers hands-on, self-guided exhibits and educational programming that explores the many ways elephants shape our world.

The Sanctuary’s Education Staff are now scheduling group tours and field trips to The Discovery Center. Special hours are reserved for group programming Tue-Fri, 9-11 am, although programs may be scheduled outside of these hours as well. Group tours and field trips feature educator-led presentations and activities, as well as self-guided exploration of The Discovery Center’s interactive exhibits. To schedule a group tour, field trip, or guided programming, call (931) 796-6500 x109.

Please Note: All elephants reside within The Sanctuary’s 2,700 acres of habitat nearby, retired from public view. There are no elephants at the Discovery Center or Outdoor Classroom.
