Elephant Aid International founder Carol Buckley purchased a cattle ranch 30 miles northwest of Tallahassee. The property features ideal elephant habitat: a mix of rolling pastures and live oaks as well as several lakes. Known as the Piergiovanni Ranch, it will serve as a refuge for up to 10 captive-held elephants to recover from past traumas and develop healthy bonds with caregivers and other elephants. “Finding the right property for elephants was quite challenging,” said Jon Kohler & Associates broker Walter Hatchett. “It needed extreme privacy, internal roads, the right soil, no power lines, rolling topography with views, free roaming space, ideal temperature, a mixture of small pastures broken up by hardwood timber, high fences, water features, and more. It had to be perfect. Ted Knight of Southern Property Connections, who is a close friend, and also represented the seller when they purchased the property over a decade ago, assisted in the transaction.”
