Last week, I had the opportunity, no, the honor of volunteering at The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee, the nation’s largest natural habitat refuge for elephants who have spent their entire lives being exploited in circuses and zoos.
All the eles who now call this sanctuary “home” are able to live out the rest of their days with the opportunity to roam and explore as they please, play with their friends, cool off in the ponds on warm days, and live as nature intended: freely.
Check out some of my pics from the day:
Hello! My name is Nina, and I am a musician-in-training, and I play 7 instruments. I am a liberal, an LGBT activist, avid reader, composer, singer, and poi spinner. I am vegan, and a strong supporter of animal rights.
I have always lived in Los Angeles but my family and I went to Mexico for my parents wedding. So we came back to LA. I don't like LA but were here already what can I do unless I move out and find my own housing. I have always liked animals and it was til I was like about 14 when I learned about tests they do on animals and I began to explore animal cruelty because I was interested it in it. I have watched videos that just broke my heart so that's why today I'm doing all I can to not buy anything that has harmed an animal and I'm vegetarian .
