How We Got Involved in Helping the Elephants

Bo, the first elephant to come to the refuge, arrived in September 2021. He, like many elephants that lived their lives in captivity, suffered from foot and knee inflammation due to spending most of their llfe on concrete. Within a few days of his arrival, Carol Buckley, Founder of the Elephant Refuge, asked Suzanne Carr, Office Assistant at the Refuge, to find a wholesale turmeric supplier. Suzanne said "I did a Google search and you guys popped up and I could not believe we had someone right here in our backyard.  I called and spoke to Diane (Taylor),  Co-Founder of The American Turmeric Company) and the rest is history." 


It has been our pleasure and privilege to provide turmeric powder to Bo first, then to Tarra when she arrived and now to Mundi, the newest addition. And, as other elephants come, we will continue to support the great work that Carol, Suzanne and the volunteer workers are doing in providing safe and loving environment for the incredible animals.
