Tarra parts ways with the Elephant Sanctuary
December 2, 2021
Asian elephant Tarra has resided at The Elephant Sanctuary since the very beginning, over 26 years. Tarra was the founding resident, and like so many other elephants, her life began in the wild, accompanied by her mother and other members of her herd. While still a calf, Tarra was captured and thrust into a life of captivity. She spent the next 20 years traveling, performing, and on exhibit. The first to retire to The Elephant Sanctuary upon its founding in 1995, Tarra holds a very special place in their hearts.
The Sanctuary is sad to announce that Tarra's chapter at The Sanctuary has come...
