Re: “The Nature of Elephants

The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee stands as a beacon of enlightened elephant management, standing in stark contrast to the outdated mindsets perpetuating deprived and abusive living conditions for these creatures in many zoos and circuses. Elephants' survival worldwide will only be accomplished by successfully achieving a shift from the "We're up here, they're down there" paradigm to the paradigm perhaps best articulated by te late naturalist, Henry Beston who said "Animals are not brethren and they are not underlings. They are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of earth."
